Thanks to Karen for the information on the falcon of Kettlestone: "The village sign at Kettlestone, depicts a Gyrfalcon. In the middle ages only the King could own such a bird and a certain Sir Thomas de Hauville who was the lord of the manor and the keeper of the kings Falcons resided here. It is said he used the Church tower at Kettlestone to observe the Performance of his Falcons"


Due to the lack of good hiding places near GZ this is a multi.

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..
