The plaque on the sign explains that the sign portrays the legend of the Holt Owl. The original sign was presented by the Holt Women's Institutes (presumably there was more than one) in 1976 and this new one was provided by public subscription and erected in 1990. The legend apparently says some local men caught an owl and put it in the Town Pound for “safe-keeping”, whereupon the owl (probably wisely) flew away.
