The village of Wimblington, lies to the East and West of the A141. And its name means "the farm of Winebealds people". It lies between Doddington and March.
The Wimblington and Stonea village sign designed and carved by Len Hopkins, stands on a small green opposite the junctions of Addison Road, Norfolk Street and Church Street.
Our double-sided sign symbolises the history of the village. The Heron, a native of the Fens, symbolises original marsh dwellers, a keen-eyed expert angler adapted to this watery environment. The Shield portrays the network of Waterways, which provide the Islands of fertile pastures and crops which now flourish as a result. The "Black Oaks" frequently unearthed are reminders of the constant need to conserve the reclaimed land.
The Roman Villa at Stonea Camp is one relic of an early invader repelled by nature. The Norman overlords found little welcome here. The Saxon hero, Hereward the Wake made use of the natural defences of the Fen. Cromwell and his Ironsides made use of the natural fortifications during the Civil War. Then came a more powerful invader in the shape of the Dutchman who laced the Fen with drains and dykes which not only gave birth to the thriving farm industry but provided ample sport with rod and line. On the reverse of the sign are carved 3 columns, Ten Horse Brasses, Heraldry of the Country which tell the story of the village.
