VILLAGE SIGN OLD BUCKENHAM
Village signs is a series of caches based on the ornate signs that depict the heritage, history and culture of the villages that put them up
(normally on the village green!).
Old Buckenham is in the southern part of the county of Norfolk, approximately 29 km (18 mi) south-west of Norwich and about 5 km (3.1 mi) south of Attleborough. Nearby villages include New Buckenham, Wilby and Banham
Old Buckenham airport lies to the north-west of the village. The remains of Old Buckenham Castle and Old Buckenham Priory are nearby.
Old Buckenham Windmill is a preserved towermill built in 1818, originally having 8 common sails but now having four patent sails. It is well known in the mill world for having the largest windmill circumference in Britain and housed five pairs of stones. The granary next door had four pairs driven by a steam (later oil) engine. The mill is open several times a year
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.
