Just replied to Someoneelse's posting and copied it to you as well as to the
list ... The 'Essex Way' waymarks are a good example of Type 2 (see my
earlier posting); the yellow and blue ones are consistent with the Type 1
waymarking colour scheme. A 'byway' may be a BOAT or a RB and thus red or
plum respectively.

Of course. It all makes sense now. Thanks. Guess I'd better check some of my
bicycle=yes tags that I've added to various footways :(

I don't know any byways around here, but I've seen both the yellow and blue
arrows (on footpaths and bridleways), although sometimes the old concrete
finger posts with the writing on the sign are more obvious. I'm in Essex, so
the arrows seem to have the Essex council logo on them.
