Geocache Description:


The centre of the Sandon Parish is probably represented by the Sandon Village Green with the Crown Inn at one end and the ancient Church of St Andrew's to the side. The Church dates back to c.1080 with the Nave and, later, the Chancel. The North Aisle was added in c.1350. Then, in 1520, the tower and porch were added by Cardinal Wolsey, Lord of the Manor of Sandon Hall. These were built at the same time as Hampton Court and by the same architect, Giralamo de Trevise.

The top of the tower is unusual - it has the appearance of the Cardinal's hat with its strings characterised by the darker bricks. The dome, in fact, is the sounding chamber for the bells and the dark bricks are in the form of crosses to match the St Andrew's crosses further down. St Andrew's Church is unarguably the most significant landmark in the area.

You know the score, the co ordinates get you to St Andrews Church car park and you have to rummage round the graveyard to get the coordinates for the final cache which is a micro not very far away containing log book and pencil.

Eric Leicester Andrews was rector of Sandon 1A36-1A51

G H M McCulloch died on C May 19B7

When Horace Claude Knight died in 1989 he was aged 8D
