A new, extra, village sign has been unveiled at Scottow.

The iron sign shows a Hurricane aircraft, as flown by Second World War fighter ace Douglas Bader from the nearby Coltishall base.

It also shows the church, a horse-drawn plough reflecting the area's farming heritage and three horseshoes remembering the former pub in the village, said parish councillor Brendan Rallison, who designed it.

The sign, made by blacksmith Paul Blyth from Honingham, is near the old airbase entrance.

It aimed to give the people living in the Badersfield community of old RAF houses, more of feeling of being part of Scottow, he added.

The sign was paid for by the council and supplemented a simple one on the main B1151 Norwich road put up for the Queen's Silver Jubilee in 1977.
