These signs will be located at each end of the footpath.
The Parish Council thanks the farmers for allowing safe passage and asks everyone using them to respect their land.
Time has finally caught up with the old Knapton Green village sign. Originally made by Henry Wild when Miss Constance Robinson generously donated the bus stop to the village, it is testament to his skill and his quality of workmanship that it has welcomed visitors to the village for almost thirty years.
The Parish Council commissioned a local craftsman, David, to create a new sign that was sympathetic to the original design and utilised the same fittings that Mr Wild had used, so as to retain the look and feel of the original.
The sign is now installed and, like Mr Wild’s original, it welcomes visitors to Knapton or Knapton Green, depending on which direction they are approaching the village from.
Cleaning up The Green…
A beautiful part of our parish, Knapton Green is less than half a mile from the Village Hall and is surrounded by beautiful countryside, criss-crossed by footpaths winding their way through woods and fields with views of the sea.
So it’s no surprise that we often see walkers and ramblers with their pets passing through as they explore the North Norfolk coast and of course they are welcome. But the number of instances of dog poo being left in bags around the green or put into the Rubbish Bin has increased and when a concerned resident contacted the Parish Council to bring it to our attention, we acted quickly to resolve it.
New Dog Waste Bin
We have installed a new Dog Waste Bin, which will be emptied on a regular basis by North Norfolk District Council. We have sited it on the opposite side of the bus stop to where the normal waste bin is, in an attempt to try to avoid the confusion of what goes where.
