An addition to the village sign series.
Tilney St Lawrence is a small village 9 miles South West of King’s Lynn
This rather unusual village sign shows a half tyre and a half cog wheel with a spanner, a whip, a Scar and a shepherds crook in the center. These symbolize the village’s links with engineering, transport, and farming.
Below the name there are two figures. The Howler on the left represents St Lawrence, patron saint of the parish church, and the Character on the right is John Aylmer who was born at Aylmer Hall in the village and in `1577 became Bishop of London
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.
