Deep Spinney Roundabout

The Parish Council has for some time been considering possible features on the Roundabout  to commemorate the lost Dovecote.   An informal survey was carried out at the Biddenham Show, the Chairman of the Parish Council, Peter Chase, made a presentation to the Biddenham Society at their annual meeting, and there has been a number of references to the idea in “The Loop”.   As a result of one of those references there has been a request for further consultation and publicity.

The idea which has received most support is that there should be two pillars, each about 3.5 metres above ground, featuring a representation of the Dovecote and the name of the village.   An impression of what the pillars might look like can be viewed on the link  Biddenham Roundabout Feature

The Parish Council is anxious that everyone should have an opportunity to comment on this project.   More comprehensive details will follow shortly on this website.
