The village may have originated as an Anglo-Saxon settlement alongside the Roman road, Icknield Way, which is close by. Domesday Book has the village named as Sextone (or the 'tun' of the Saxons), and it is written as Saxham in later documents. The village sign shows a cock pheasant with its colourful plumage, and there has been a cache (Don't scare the bird GC3V4G5) close to the village sign since 2012, so this cache has to be hidden a little walk away but still just within sight of the village sign!
Saxon Street was once thought of as 'a considerable hamlet of Woodditton' and although Saxon Street is part of Woodditton parish, it has the feeling of a separate village 'street' with a series of very well-kept old properties looked after by a caring community.
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
