Geocache Description:

A camoflaged micro cache a short walk away from Avening Church.
You can combine this cache with the Carrog's Avening Circular Walk series

History of the church dates back to the 12th Century, when Matilda, future wife of William the Conqueror fell for Brittric, Saxon Lord of Avening. However, Brittric didn't love Matilda, so she threw him in a dungeon, where Brittric died. Overcome with guilt, she commisioned the building of the church. This makes Avening church unique, being the only church to be commisioned by a queen. It still retains some of it's Norman features today.

If anybody would like to expand this series, please do. I would only ask that you could let Sadexploration know so he can keep track of church names & numbers to avoid duplication

Well done to:

--------------26th July 2012--------------
Cache was muggled so I have replaced it a few metres away, it's now a sneakier hide. You will need a pen or pencil as well as tweezers to get the log out. Be aware of muggles as the site is overlooked by houses
