North Lincolnshire Council has installed two new picturesque boundary signs for Keadby and Derrythorpe in the Isle of Axholme.

The new signs are funded by North Lincolnshire as part of wider investment scheme specifically for the Isle of Axholme.

A further sign will be installed soon for the village of Althorpe.

The Keadby sign has an image of the Historic Port and the Derrythorpe sign has an image of shire horses ploughing a field.

The Althorpe sign, when installed, will have an image of the 15th Century St Oswald’s’ Church.

Councillor John Briggs, cabinet member for Commercial Enterprise at North Lincolnshire Council, said: “The signs are a great way to show people what to expect in these attractive rural villages. They all depict various historic aspects of each area and are offer a real welcome to residents and visitors coming into the villages. The Isle of Axholme is a fantastic place with lots to see and do; the signs hopefully show off the villages at their best.”
