cost to the village. If there was a preference for traditional 'Heritage-type' signs - like the older cast-iron ones - then there could be a small additional cost.

The Parish Council would like to hear what people think of this proposal, so please send your comments to the Parish Clerk, Kevin Price

Lowfields Lane in Barbon parish is signposted off the A683, no doubt to the benefit of those properties accessed from it.


The Parish Council would be willing to consider any other street nameplates that residents may consider might be beneficial, provided they are listed in the National Street Gazetteer.


Road Sign

When the new boundary sign near Devil's Bridge was made available by YDNPA, it was decided to put 'CASTERTON' on the plinth as it marks the parish boundary as well as that of the NP.  


As there is alredy a Casterton sign further up the A683 towards the village, the Parish Council decided, after consulting with residents, to make a formal request to YDNPA for 'LUNE VALLEY' to added to the sign.  


'LUNE VALLEY was added to the sign in October 2018.


Road Names ('street nameplates')

To assist visitors and delivery vehicles, the Parish Councilb decided, after consultation with residents, to place nameplates on the two main approaches into the village from A683 and A65, namely Chapel House Lane and Colliers Lane.  SLDC installed the nameplates in October 2018.
