Croxley Script, rewritten

One of my favourite words is palimpsest. A palimpsest is not just a blank sheet; it is a piece of writing material, usually vellum, from which the previous writing has been erased, the surface scraped off, so that it can be used again.

Thanks to Alan for pointing me towards this photo (on Geograph) of the site of Croxley Mill as it is today.

And here again, as it was in the early sixties
(thanks again to Diamond Geezer for this photo)

Not a trace of the original script remains.
