On a non beer-related forum, the subject recently came up of pub signs that completely span the road. The best must surely be that of the Fox & Hounds (http://g.co/maps/vy5dn) at Barley near Royston in Hertfordshire, with its cast of fox, hounds and mounted huntsmen. Others that were mentioned were the Magpie (http://g.co/maps/3ednr) at Stonham Parva in Suffolk, where the sign spans the main A140 road, and two coaching inns, the Green Man & Black’s Head (http://g.co/maps/u6k4z) at Ashbourne in Derbyshire, and the George (http://g.co/maps/8t4tp) at Stamford in Lincolnshire.

Are there any others to be found?
