Almost every community in Suffolk and Norfolk proudly displays a village sign. But what of the origins of these signs? And how and what do they tell us about the history of those villages? Why is a pig so prominent on the Redgrave village sign? And which famous resident do the sun and clouds on the Thwaite village sign commemorate? In this talk, Sarah Doig explores this fascinating aspect of our local history, drawing on examples from across the region.
