Hednesford Honi Soit

'Honi Soit Qui Mal y Pense' - Tiled feature in Hednesford

Hednesford has a reputation as a no-nonsense mining town (well, ex-mining town, I should say), so to see a rather aesthetic tiled work above the shop-fronts in the town centre was a bit of a surprise. 
In the diamond it reads 'Honi Soit Qui Mal y Pense' a motto which appears on the royal coat of arms.

It seems oddly out of place; I'd love to know the history of it.
