FARM GATEPOSTS - Newhaven to Friden road

On the Newhaven to Youlgrave road these farm gateposts can be found and they must be unique in the message that they give - make every day count but don't spoil the countryside.

The left hand post has the message -

'Live as if you'll die tomorrow'

The two posts replaced some old concrete pillars. Paid by Wren Re-cycling, this project involved environmental improvements including a new traditonal oak gate and the rebuilding some of neighbouring walls.

The mason was Michael Steel.

The right hand one has the message -

'Farm as if you'll live forever'
