Geocache Description:

Nature reserve with flat paths.

Church Wilne is a tiny village located next to the river Derwent about 2 miles south of Draycott. Approaching Draycott on the A6005 road, turn into Draycott village and follow the sign to Church Wilne down the narrow bendy road.

The name ‘Wilne’ means 'a clearing in the willows'. A church was recorded there in AD 822 dedicated to St Chad, the Bishop of Lichfield whose diocese covered the area. There was also a well near to the church which was used to baptize early converts to Christianity. Today there is a nature reserve and lake opposite the church called St Chad’s Water, with a mile long flat perimeter trail.

The cache is a small canister covered in black tape. Contents include a button badge, a Father Christmas decoration, a flower candle, and log book and pencil.
