West Haddon in Northamptonshire, has a very nice sign, with a sheep, church, canal and some Almshouses. The church is ‘All Saints’, which I still have to post about, as it has a wonderful font. We visited the church in November 2015 and I just noticed the sign as we were hurtling past, hence its a bit blurry.
I found a little history of the Almshouses….The sons of a doctor who had moved into the village in the 1730s became some of the biggest farmers in the parish and one of them, John Heygate, became the nearest thing the village had ever known to a squire, endowing the village with a school, while his heir, William Lovett, established the Almshouses.
The canal depicted, I think, is the Grand Union Canal, but the sheep, I have no idea. It could be that maybe the Heygates (the biggest farmers from the 1730) had sheep, or the area is know for sheep.
