A new sign was unveiled on Saturday in Great Barton, which scooped the title ‘Suffolk Village of the Year’ in 2013.
The oak sign has been carved by Rob Lewis, who has done work for 10 Downing Street and more, and the painting is based on the rural scene The Gleaners by the artist Jean-François Millet. Great Barton was Bertuna in Anglo Saxon meaning ‘place of the barley’.
Grants for the sign came from St Edmundsbury Borough Council, Suffolk County Council and nine local clubs.
