History on Old Buckenham plinth

Plaques record village activity
If you look on the four sides of the newly-cleaned plinth for the village sign, this is what you will see:

Old Buckenham Women's Institute raised the funds and organised the design and installation of the sign back in 1979.

Various members of the village took part in this exercise to record what was going on in here in Old Buckenham some 900 years after the original Domesday Book was produced.

Old Buckenham was the winner of a Norfolk County Council competition to find the best communities in the county (under 2500 inhabitants).

Old Buckenham repeated its success in the competition the following year. This was the last time the competition was held, the County Council deciding it could not afford to fund it any more.
