The galleon used as this website's logo is the emblem of both the Parish Council and the village. The image depicts the first of no less than five Ark Royal ships to serve the Crown, and was 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 in Deptford in 1587 for his own use, but before launch she was purchased by Queen Elizabeth I for £5000. Subsequent HMS Ark Royals were launched in 1914, 1937, 1950 & 1981, the last of which was decommissioned in 2011. Captain Kyd, the last commander, expressed the hope that there would be a sixth Ark Royal in the not-too-distant future. "It is an iconic name that has real resonance with the British people, with the Royal Navy, and around the world."
