These classic old embossed village nameplates are sadly being exchanged for modern urban looking signs that look totally out of character in a rural village
Just an Example of a run down looking cast metal village nameplate in the beautiful East Sussex Hamlet of Withyham which is situated on the Kent & Sussex border close to Ashdown Forest & the famous Pooh Sticks Bridge
We can restore your original cast metal & pressed aluminium village nameplates to thier original condition at a very reasonable cost. We can have these signs shot blasted, then powder coated, etched primed and the black on white detail picked out in a high quality black enamel finish. We then install these with new 3 inch Galvanised poles painted in a black enamel finish. The result is a brand new looking sign but with all the character of the past. We pick out the Sussex Martlet birds
in 22 carat gold leaf. which is then protected by an exterior varnish.
It is really sad to see these classic old village signs just left to fall into such a state of disrepair as when restored they are fit for purpose for the next half a century. They look so much more in keeping with the countryside than the tacky modern types now causing a blot on the landscape throughout rural England. So why don't we act now to save as many as we can ?
These lovely old Sussex Nameplates are Starting to Disappear From Many of The Sussex Villages
by Being Replace by Tacky Modern Versions That Just Don't Look Appropriate In A Rural Area.
A refurbishment would allow this sign to remain here for another 50 years as they are made from aluminium & angle iron supports. We can restore them to look like new signs but retaining their traditional character.
