Between £15,000 and £20,000 has been raised from the auction of old Aberystwyth street signs, which were replaced with Edwardian-style versions.

The BBC reported “About 150 people attended the auction at The Coliseum, Ceredigion Museum, as more than 200 signs went under the hammer.

Chalybeate Street raised the most, with an estate agent paying £500.

The signs were replaced as part of an £800,000 scheme to improve the look of the Welsh seaside town.

The exact figure raised will be counted and confirmed by the Friends of Ceredigion Museum group on Tuesday” here.
