Town Signs

The Billericay Society gift to the Town


The original sign on Perry Green after one of its renovations


Our first wooden town sign was erected on Perry Green by the A129 junction with Mountnessing Road to commemorate Queen’s Elizabeth’s Coronation in 1953. Mrs. Cater, founder of the Cater Museum, unveiled the first town sign.

With two restorations, it stood for 40 years.

The current sign on Perry Green



The original town sign on Perry Green eventually succumbed to age and a new sign, our third, made from weather resistant metal replaced it in March 1997. This sign was designed by the Billericay Society past chairman Roy Mizen.





The unveiling of the Stock Road Sign

Erected in 1995, our fourth town sign is in Stock Road [B1007] by the Potash roundabout. This was to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Billericay Society. The main board is made of Iroco, a hard wood from Africa.  Splitting of the leg supports damaged this sign in August 1997.   It was restored by Peter Benson and was re-erected in October 2000.

  • The top picture is of a group of Society members at a bulb planting, hence the spades The Society arranged several bulb planting sessions on this green. One on the 4th November 1985 is possibly shown in this picture.

    The new metal sign was actually unveiled on the 29th May 1993.
