The galleon used as this website's logo is the emblem of both the Parish Council and the village. It is the Ark Royal, the flagship of the English fleet in which Lord Howard of Effingham successfully faced the Spanish Armada in 1588. Sir Walter Raleigh had the ship built at Deptford in 1587 for his own use, but before launch she was purchased by Queen Elizabeth I for £5,000. Today’s HMS Ark Royal, 5th to bear the name, is still flagship of the ‘Senior Service’ – the navy. An emblem to live up to!
