Rayne is a village of about 2,300 residents in the Braintree district of Essex.
It used to be a more important settlement than Braintree in Norman times, although this has not been the case for a long time now.
Rayne, which is located about 40 miles (64 km) north-east of London, is twinned with Verberie which is about 40 miles (64 km) north-east of Paris in the French region of Picardy, which coincidentally is twinned with the County of Essex.
In 2006, Rayne was named Essex Village of the 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.
