Milk Churn Inn Sign of the Year Award

Milk Churn ISS

The Milk Churn, a new-build country pub in Melksham, won a Gold prize from the Inn Sign Society

The Inn Sign Society unites every year to examine some 55,000 pubs, and great examples of the art of sign painting.

In 2013, land was bought just outside the ancient market town of Melksham by family brewers, Hall & Woodhouse. The newly built pub opened in July 2014 to droves of local and passing Guests, and has become a hive of activity ever since. The double-sided pub sign depicts the history of the local area, and it’s importance throughout time as dairy pasture, and a thriving market town. Phil Taylor, the artist of the prize-winning picture, has painted a number of original pub signs for Hall & Woodhouse. His work is always well-received and greatly appreciated by both Team and Guests.

The other side of the sign was painted by local artist, Victor Steele. He won first place in the Dorset Arts competition for the opportunity to have his work displayed above the House.
