The Carved Signs on a post next to the Church Yard depict the history of the village of East Drayton
The West facing side of the carving represents the following:
- Combine Harvester is for modern farming
- The cricket pitch and rollers are for sport in the village
- the tree and wall for the church and grounds along with the crossed keys
- The bridge to represent that all access to the village is via bridges crossing waterways.
The East facing side of the carving represents the following:
- The hand/horse plough for ancient farming.
- The Bell for the Blue Bell Inn and the Anvil because there was a Smithy there.
- The Dividers and Square and church spire to represent Nicholas Hawkmoor's historical presence in the locality.
- Crossed Keys for the church.
[The sign originally faced to North and South but was changed when support post was renewed and to give better visibility at the road junction for tractor drivers]
