The sign itself consists of a pair of railings also seen in Link which were made by George T. Bloomfield who had a foundry in Thelnetham High Street in 1851. They once formed part of the culvert at Cross Green and are the only known example of the parishes industrial past. When they were dismantled in 1982 someone had the foresight to save them from the smelter.
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.
