Signage Repairs in North Bovey
North Bovey Conservation Group received funding through the Highway Maintenance Community Enhancement Fund (HMCEF) to purchase personal protective equipment (PPE), signage and materials to enable maintenance throughout the village.
The group have completed two separate signpost renovation projects to date. The first was near Hele Farm. The sign is a cast iron heritage signpost and was in a derelict condition, in particular rusty with missing finger posts.
The post was cleaned and repainted in classic black and white livery as recommended by Historic England. New fingerposts were made from 25mm marine ply and the designated captions were agreed after some research and local knowledge. The characters were generated courtesy of The Fab Lab facility at the DCC Library in Exeter.
In addition, the group have also undertaken signpost remediation at Bughead Cross on the B3212 and at Hospit Cross on the lane between North Bovey and Moretonhampstead.
