Geocache Description:

This is a quick cache dash located near to Wishaw Church.
You are looking for a black 100mm diameter screw top pot. There is room for small trackables and swaps.
There is also parking near to the church gates.

A photograph of you with the cache would be good..


Wishaw Church is dedicated to St. Chad who was Bishop of Lichfield from 669 - 672. This suggests that it was established about this time. It would have been constructed of timber in the typical Saxon style. The red sandstone chancel is the oldest part of the present church and was built at the turn of the 13th century. The priest is mentioned in the Domesday Book and in 1291 there is a statement that the living was valued at £3.6s.8d. per annum.

The idea of the cache is to bring fellow smiley hunters to places and structures that have some significance in our social history.

I hope you enjoy the location, architecture and the history of this beautiful location.

Please respect the fact that the church and cemetery are still in use.

Congratulations to 5Taylors for the FTF.
