Newbourne village sign (detail)
The sign very accurately depicts the church of St Mary and the Fox Inn. The tomatoes and lettuces are grown in the parish under glass by Virginia Nurseries which were founded in 1981, and are a substantial local employer. Below the name is the village hall and a mare and foal complete the picture. Link
Village Signs of East Anglia

Village signs are typically placed along the principal road or in a prominent location such as a village green or close by the church. The design often depicts a particularly feature of the village or a scene from its history, heritage, or culture. They are typically made of wood or metal or a combination of both, the designs are often made by the local community.
Although they do appear in villages and towns all over the country they are more prominent in East Anglia than elsewhere in the country.
