The signs can be made of different materials from fibreglass to wood, from forged steel to stone. They can depict anything from local industry to historical events. The tradition probably stated in Norfolk or Suffolk and has now spread across most of the country so we thought we would base a series on them!
The name Tyttenhanger or Tydenhangre is first recorded in 1248 and probably means the "wooded slope belonging to Tida"
Tyttenhanger is a hamlet one mile north of London Colney in the parish of St Peter, and partly within the borough of St Albans.
I couldn't find any information about why the sign depicts what it does, if anyone knows let me know.......
C&D. Please don't park at the GZ as you'll cause a obstruction please park down the side Street. This is a residential area please park responsibly.
If anybody would like to expand this series please do. I would just ask that you let SmokeyPugs know first so they can keep track of the Village Sign numbers and names to avoid duplication.
