Long Description:
The sign shows the church of St Nicholas with monastical figures either side.

Arrington is on the A1198 road, the old Roman Ermine Street. Around 950, the settlement's name was written as Earnningtone; in the 1086 Domesday Book it was spelled Erningtune. By the 13th century, the village was known as Aring(e)ton(e). The probable meaning was 'farmstead of the family or followers of a man called Earn(a)'.Flint tools have been found along the spring line around Church Farm.
