The name 'Livermere' was first recorded in the year 907a.d making it one of the earliest of all recording to survive. 'Livermere' means the lake where rushes grew from pre 7th century Olde English 'laefor-mere'. Rushes were widely used for domestic situation incuding roofing, flooring and heating.
The heart of Great Livermere Village contains the War Memorial near the Village Sign and a 12th Century Medieval Church, St. Peters. Walking around the Village, you will find the Village Hall, the newly equipped large playing field, the Old Forge Corner with its re-commissioned old pump and the 'Book Exchange' in the old Telephone Box.
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.
