One big difference between Japanese traffic lights and British ones is how they change from red to green.

I was a bit perplexed to see amber and red flash at the same time.

工事現場の信号機 Traffic Lights at Construction Site

In Japan traffic lights at construction site has only two lights, green and red, but in UK they have three: green, amber and red.
Traffic lights at construction site turn in the same way as the ones on the street; red and amber flash before they turn green.
I think this kind of traffic lights with amber is more combinient than the one with just two lights.

By the way, I hiked Peak District when I took this picture.
When I heard 'Peak District' I only thought about Chatsworth, which appears as Mr Darcy's manor in the movie Pride and Prejudice (I prefer BBC version) so I wore sneakers (Converse), but the roads were very muddy with rain and I felt I would fell off from a cliff and die!
In the movie(s) Elizabeth walked with a long skirt, but I'm certain it is not a suitable fashion for hiking at Peak District.
