Broomfield village sign
Broomfield village sign
Topped with the Kent Invicta the sign depicts a church bell and the home in Broomfield of the bell founder, Joseph Hatch. From 1606 to 1635 Joseph occupied Roses Manor Farm. Joseph cast his early bells in Broomfield but it is likely that many of his later bells were cast on his lands in King's Wood, in Ulcombe Parish. By his death in 1636 over 200 of his bells rang in Kent churches and in the cathedral at Canterbury. Today five hang in the church at Ulcombe LinkExternal link one in Leeds LinkExternal link and one in Broomfield. The sign stands next to TQ8352 : St Margaret's Well
