The religious figure represents the Bishop of Ely, once owner of Barking Manor. The Lebanon cedar tree represents the cedar trees in the churchyard planted by Rev. Robert Uvedale, Rector from 1699-1723. The plough symbolises the importance of agriculture in the parish.
Village Signs of East Anglia
Village signs are typically placed along the principal road or in a prominent location such as a village green or close by the church. The design often depicts a particularly feature of the village or a scene from its history, heritage, or culture. They are typically made of wood or metal or a combination of both, the designs are often made by the local community. Although they do appear in villages and towns all over the country they are more prominent in East Anglia than elsewhere in the country.
