Village Sign in Great Braxted.
The east-facing side shows a tree, rabbit, birds and an apple (ball) taking the bails off cricket stumps. The west-facing side shows a village pump, trees, birds, flowers and an ear of corn.
The place-name 'Braxted' is first attested in the Domesday Book of 1086, where it appears as Brachesteda. The name comes from the Old English 'braec', meaning 'newly-cultivated land'. Great Braxted is first attested (in Latin) as Magna Bracsted in 1206.
