Mickfield Village Sign


Original Mickfield Village sign

The Village Sign is placed alongside the Old Forge, flush with the building, just near the crossroad. It shows two crossed sythes, for the farming community, which cleverley give a shield-like image. The crossed bars denote Church of St. Andrew, with the bklacksmith's anvil in the top crossing. A ploughman with a white and a brown horse drawing the plough make the main image, above the nameplate. The two small flowers beneath the nameplate are fritillaries, which grow in abundance at Fritillary Meadow.

This lovely sign was manufactured by Mr. Alan Thurlow and Mr. Rex Garrod of Mickfield.1
