Kent Village Signs
King George VI recommended that the old custom of identifying villages with carved or painted name signs could be revived. In 1920, Biddenden had won a Daily Mail competition for a sign featuring the two Biddenden Maids.
More villages followed, especially in 1953, the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. More signs have been put up due to the Millennium. This has meant half of the county villages are identified.]
