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 (normally on the village green!).
Several months after it was removed from its prominent position at the road junction at the bottom of Mill Road, in front of St Peter’s Church. The Village Sign has now been fully restored and returned to its proper place.
The design of the sign was originally researched by Bill Matthews in the late 1970s and, helped by his daughter Debbie with some of the drawings, it was eventually constructed and erected on its oak post and flint base (topped with a millstone from one of the Forncett mills) to mark the marriage of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer in 1981.
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
