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.
Mellis is a small village in Suffolk, England. It has the largest area of unfenced common land in England. Oliver Cromwell exercised his troops in Mellis. It once had a railway station on the main line between London and Norwich and a small branch line that ran to nearby Eye.
In summer rare plants such as green-winged orchid, sulphur clover and adder’s tongue fern flourish. The abundance of small mammals also makes the site a favourite hunting ground for barn owl and tawny owl.
The 14th century parish church of St Mary, restored in 1859 and 1900, is a grade II* listed building.
There is a beautiful stained glass windowed Red Phone box nearby which is well worth a visit
