Description: Two brightly painted tree stumps named
Fred and Mary.

History: The Fred and Mary tree stumps have bemused
motorists for years and have become an important landmark for the area. Unfortunately poor old Fred was burnt to
the ground in a nasty act of vandalism in 2004. The community was so saddened by the loss of Fred that a cross was
erected and local school children left messages and flowers at its base.
