2008 : Rode Village Sign
2008 : Rode Village Sign
The sign is a celebration of the village past and present.
The left hand panel represents the wool industry which was the source of prosperity for the village during the 16th and 17th centuries with 4 or 5 woollen mills also the making of Queen Charlotte's dress and the invention of the dye "royal blue" at that time.
The right hand panel shows the brewing industry which unfortunately ceased in the 1960's.
The centre panel appears to represent the village today with the River Frome and its wildlife.
