Withybrook Village Sign

Village signs in Warwickshire

Withybrook Village Sign 2015
Anne Langley

Here’s a charming sign in the village of Withybrook: the painting shows what is recognisably the local parish church plus a willow tree and the local brook. Withy is an old name for a willow or osier tree, and withies were poles cut from them for various agricultural purposes.

East Anglia has many village signs, but they’re relatively rare in Warwickshire.

Do you have an interesting sign in your town or village?
