Along the Great West Road in Brentford there's a traffic sign. Just a very simple white metal sign with plain black lettering, on a post by the side of the roadway. One of those signs in the shape of an arrow, indicating which way the approaching traffic should turn to reach the destination indicated on the sign, and how much further they should expect to have to travel until they reach their destination.
This sign states, simply:

3/4 Space Station

Nothing more. The next road along proves to be labelled as Transport Road (or perhaps it was Drive or Avenue, I did not check the small print), which somehow makes sense to me as the name of a road that leads to a Space Station.

And no, I'm not going to check with Google, or any other search engine or other source of information for that matter, to find out what sort of 'Space Station' it is.

Ah, Space. The Final Frontier...

Yes, I know the icon is from the wrong show... :D

Very wise. It's quite disappointing.

Secret Nuclear Bunker, on the other hand . . .

The "Central Line Stickers" movement is clearly expanding!

I've read enough Robert Rankin novels to think that a space station in Brentford sounds entirely plausible.
