A fairly recent but already very popular landmark in the village can be found on a roof in High Street. When this grade II listed building was renovated a few years ago, the three pigs were added to the top of the roofline. Constructed from long straw thatch, one of the main reasons for this was because many years ago there had been a piggery on the nearby land.
The owners are aware that many people stop to look and photograph the pigs; they have been used as a landmark for treasure hunts, and local school children are brought to see them when learning about the history of the village. My grandsons certainly think they're great fun, and they always make me smile.
