fingerpost, Garnett Bridge -- Garnett Bridge -- Whitwell and Selside -- Cumbria / -- ... with 'trivia' attached; this is the regular place for Longsleddale valley notices. -- 16.3.2010

hearsay The word trivia had not reached my edition of the Oxford English Dictionary. But trivium is a meeting of three roads: Latin tres and via. There is a suggested etymology for trivia, perhaps a spoof, that they are the messages left at a meeting of three ways, where people pass and are likely to see it; which is what happens in Longsleddale.
