The "B's" in Glastonbury Abbey look quite consistent, possibly suggesting an actual font?

Also i'm sure i've seen similar faces floating around like "somerset". very much like this classical circus type lettering used on posters.

Help is greatly appreciated.

Or an accomplished lettering artist, more likely...

Dave Smith, who I think is from neighbouring Devon, restores and reproduces a lot of this type of signage. His fonts for Letterhead are a similar flavour, but all look influenced by styles from slightly later than this.

Thanks Justin, you lead me onto John Studden's LHF King Edward which could make an interesting substitute for me.

Many Thanks
