Pointing the Way..
Part of the funding from the Big Lottery Fund, which the Heritage Group were awarded in 2011, was intended for the provision of a finger-post in the village to direct visitors towards three sites of heritage interest.
This was erected in the autumn of 2011 at the end of Church Green nearest to the crossroads. One “finger” points to Saint Thomas’ Church where the famous hog-back tombstones reside, another points to Water End and the Linen Workers Memorial Seat and the third to the site of the linen mills.
Though the last one seems to be pointing to the nearby houses, visitors have used their common sense and realised it is directing them to Station Road, where they can discover the two information boards on the road-side edge of the Recreation Ground car park which tell them about the linen industry and The Battle of the Standard.
