Muban rename in Sukhothai

Another administrative village has changed its name as decided in the 3rd meeting of board to consider name changes in this year. Last week, the rename of Ban Wang Mai Charoen Suk (บ้านวังใหม่เจริญสุข), village 11 of Mueang Kao subdistrict, Mueang Sukhothai district, was announced in the Royal Gazette. The new name is Ban Saen To (บ้านแสนตอ). Translating the village names literally, this means that "New palace growing happiness" becomes "Hundred thousand stumps".

The administrative village was created in 2003 by splitting of parts of Mo 4, Ban Wang Takhro (บ้านวังตะคร้อ) [Gazette], and is located in the north of Mueang Kao subdistrict, aroung five kilometer northwest of Sukhothai historical park. Thanks to the Gazette announcement on the creation of this village with the exact boundary definition, I could find the sign at the beginning of the village in Streetview. And even the office of the village headman has a location page on Google plus already, but no sign around that house to confirm its location being correct.
