On my travels around the county, I always love it when you come across one of our quirky signs – no matter what the weather or my mood they can’t help but fail to bring a smile to my face.

Here are just some of the quirky signs that you can find around Wiltshire:

Cricklade - In 1832 on this spot nothing happened! A great little sign located just off Cricklade’s High Street.

Cricklade, Wiltshire

Happy Land – a street found in the small north Wiltshire village of Ashton Keynes. You can’t be miserable living there, right?

Lover – famous for its visits by romantics in advance of Valentine’s Day. This small village sits on the edge of the New Forest National Park. It’s technically pronounced ‘Lowver’.

Lover, Wiltshire

New Zealand – you don’t really have to travel far to get to New Zealand. You can in fact find it just off the A3102 south of Lyneham.

New Zealand, Wiltshire

Tiddleywink – just outside of Castle Combe, this small hamlet has quite possibly my favourite Wiltshire village name!

Free Range Children – as you approach Castle Combe, look out for those free range children!
