Geocache Description:

The Cache is close to St Andrews Church Totteridge

Formerly The Oldest Tree in the Village

The site of the Church is very old. This is suggested by the rounded boundaries of the Churchyard implying an underlying mote and ancient meeting place. Its position is at the junction of the routes to London and Barnet, (originally a cross roads but now a T-junction) and we know that such places were important and had a sacred significance for pre-Christian peoples. An old Yew tree reckoned to be between 1000 and 2000 years old also stands in the Churchyard. The Yew with its evergreen leaves was a traditional symbol of immortality.

Try to avoid looking for the cache between 3 to 5 pm during week days as there are a large number of school children leaving a local school at that time.

Totteridge Lane is a very busy road so if you are coming by car it might be best to park at the Orange Tree pub and walk to the cache on the right side of the road to avoid being run over.

When I'm out caching I carry a supply of replacement log sheets so that I can help out the cache owner by carrying out any maintenance that's required.

If anybody would like to replace any logs that need urgent servicing in my caches, please do so.

“If anybody would like to expand this series please do, I would just ask that you could let Sadexploration know first at so he can keep track of the Church numbers and names to avoid duplication.
There is also a Church Micro Stats & Information page found via the Bookmark list”
