A play on words!
ED,has your built up place a special name?
4 such things R important U No?
Like Old Catton,our local village. The name derives from the old times well before Duke William,nicked all of England.Yes years A 4 that Append.
As the story goes,a certain cat sat upon a wooden barrel, and so the village being built up around the unfinished Saxon church,became known,as ` CAT ON BARREL' ,but it needed tidying up somewhat. 4 it were a hog full,no 1 knew how 2 spell.So as time jogged along past the old completed church the locals dropped the barrel,which left ,`CAT ON'. So more time passed and became many a year,and a T was added to the village name,and the little dreamy place a dot on the map,just outside Norwich , became CATTON.
Just opposite the Old Church,the Village Sign stands and it is a Black Cat sat on a Barrel.
