Willaston Village Sign
Willaston Village Sign
The sign stands on the Small Green in the centre of Willaston. The base is made of local red sandstone and the twelve-sided millstone was used in Willaston Mill which ceased to be a working mill in 1930. When the stone was erected here in 1996, a "time capsule" was buried beneath it.
