Geocache Description:

St James…Shere

The 4th in this series is at ‘St James in Shere

St James’s Church, which was built in 1190, can be found in the centre of the picturesque Surrey village of Shere. The church has a Norman tower and its lychgate was designed by the British architect, Edward Landseer Lutyens in 1901. The church is one of the attractions on the Pilgrim’s Way and is famous for the story of the anchoress, Christine Carpenter, who was enclosed in a cell within the North wall of the church for three years.

Although you can park outside the church this is a very pretty little village which attracts a lot of visitors and can make parking difficult so I would strongly advise parking in Gomshall lane around N51.13.212 W00.27.635 and take the nearby footpath into the church. .

An easy off set cache, the coordinates will take you to the Millennium Stone just inside the church (it can be seen in the picture)

The plaque on the ground. John Wesleys Rule 17AB – 1CDE

The cache is not far away at 51.13. A C ( B+2 ) 000.27. C ( D-E ) B

The cache has a log book but no pen so please bring one with you
