TQ8835 : St Michaels Village Sign by David Anstiss
On junction of Grange Road (going left) and !A28 Ashford Road (on right). Has small plaque on post which reads 'St Michaels Village Sign. Unveiled by Sir Donald Sinden, March 2008. This village sign takes as its theme the conflict between St Michael the Archangel and Satan (often depicted as a dragon). According to the Bible, St Michael prevailed, driving the dragon from heaven and down to earth. It is a parable of the victory of goodness over evil. The sign is seen as an integral part of the identity of St Michaels, providing a focal point within the village. Commissioned by the Village Committee, the sign is a tribute to the residents of St Michaels, whose involvement and enthusiasm has served to install a positive community spirit within the village. Designed by Trevor Bingham of St Michaels. Manufactured by Black Forge Art of Wittersham.'
