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.

Pettaugh is a small village of a little over 200 inhabitants in 85 households, 10 miles north of Ipswich and 2½ miles south of Debenham, in the beautiful county of Suffolk.  It is in a rural location surrounded by farmland, at the junction of the A1120 (Stowmarket to Yoxford) and the Coddenham to Debenham roads.

The Google Earth view of Pettaugh shows a few houses surrounded on all sides by a patchwork of farm fields. Years ago the fields may have been smaller, with lots more hedges, but farm fields surrounding the village is probably the way it's been for a very long time.

The village sign reflects this -- it features a farmer with his horse-drawn plough, working the  farmland around Pettaugh, an Anvil, indicating the existence of a blacksmith in the village, essential to farming in the days of horse-drawn ploughs, and the wind mill which stood at the centre of the village. Thus are the main occupations of Pettaugh residents of 'yesteryear' represented -- farming, smithing and milling the grain, mostly working very close to home.
