TG3821 : Village sign, Catfield

taken 12 years ago, near to Catfield, Norfolk, Great Britain

Village sign, Catfield
Village sign, Catfield
"This sign was unveiled by John Francis from Anglia Television on 14 September 1998". As well as TG3821 : All Saints' Church, Catfield, a tractor and a trading wherry (see TG2508), the sign depicts a cat and, at the top, the local rare species, a swallowtail butterfly. The wherry is significant because the village has two staithes, one on the Ant in TG3620 and one on the Thurne TG3921 - just over 2 miles as the crow flies, not much more by road, but a tortuous 14 miles or more by river. Apparently the village used to be known as "Clever Catfield" for this reason.
