Q20.02. Signaling on the GWR.

Query Corner – top page

Was there any kind of law (statute, regulation, ministerial directive or similar instrument) stiulating the distance a Distant Signal must be from the Home Signal?

Is 440 yards the standard distance for any signal tobe from another (distant/home or home/clearing point etc)? 440 yards has been seen on one diagram, but that was home to clearing point. (Andy Davies: 169640)
