Village Signage

A small Working Party was set up from within the CMCCT Executive and following lengthy negotiations with Devon County Council were able to get 3 new Combe Martin signs made and put in place. In addition, with assistance from Exmoor National Park, several oak fingerboard signs were positioned within Combe Martin, identifying local landmarks. This work was funded by the CMCCT, with assistance from District and County Councillor grants.
