Great Moulton village sign
Great Moulton village sign
Rising above the village is St. Michaelís church and the brick wall represents the railway bridge, under which the Norwich to London line passes. The open trestle postmill was destroyed by fire just before the Great War. The other building is the Grade II* Rectory which was built in 1831 with a three-storey tower. An elegant building with an Italian feel about it. The apple represents a former cider maker in the village by the name of William Bales. The ears of corn represent the agricultural nature of the parish. 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.
