Foxton Village Sign

The FGA is proud to be associated with the initial idea of a new village sign and its design and construction.

Jointly funded by Foxton Parish Council, the FGA and individual donations, the sign depicts notable buildings and features in the village plus the eponymous fox.

The unveiling took place on 4 November 2012 and despite the pouring rain attracted a good turnout including the artist/designer Brian Gaze. See the gallery below for some pictures.

The sign incorporates scenes of Foxton life suggested by residents and members of the Common Stream History Society. These include the parish church of St Laurence, the Dovecote, Burlington Press and historic cottages on the village green.

Other elements that can be seem are the Mortimers Lane pump to symbolise the common stream, sporting equipment to illustrate the active life of the village, wheat sheaves for our farming heritage and a Civil War helmet that harks back to Cromwell’s stay in Foxton.
