The Sun public house in Felmersham has a new sign, it was painted by Sebastian Blore-Rimmer, a local artist, who works in the old chapel at Stevington. He runs it as an emporium where he makes jewellery and sells a variety of interesting stuff.
In this painting by T Bartlett we see 4 men fixing the weather cock on Yelden church spire. One man is sitting on a board which has been passed through two small windows in a spire. He appears to be steadying the fourth ladder which is resting on the board. Health and Safety 1896! On the 17th April 1718 William Dickens fell while pointing Keysoe church steeple. On his way down he hit the tower battlements and broke his leg and foot and, before hitting the ground, he managed to ask the Lord for mercy three times. He survived and passed away 41 years later in 1759 at the age of 73. In response to concerns over speeding in Radwell, the Parish Council has successfully applied for a 20mph speed limit in Moor End Road and The Green. Remembrance Sunset
