Long Description:
Right next to a bus stop in leafy suburbia.
We stopped off on our journey to the in laws at Sunbury when I noticed this.
Fortunately nobody was at the bus stop to see the crazy man on all fours trying (unsucessfully) to read the manufacturer and date!
It is located in Harfield Road, just off the A308 Upper Sunbury Road, post code TW16 5PT.
If anyone has better luck decoding the manufacturer and year can they let me know please so I can update the waymark.

I believe the year to be 1897 now.

Thanks
