Amateur photographer Gren Owen has posed Guardian readers a question about the Cowbit village sign.

Gren, who takes pictures for our regular ‘Bird’s Eye View’ feature on page 11 every week, wondered why there is an alternate spelling of the village name, with two ‘ts’ underneath the main name.

He also wondered about the significance of ‘1981’ on the sign.

We would welcome anyone who can explain the anomaly to email jeremy.ransome@jpress.co.uk or call 01775 765403.
