Geocache Description:

This is a multi-cache which leads you round this lovely Northamptonshire village, learning a little of its history, and finally a gentle stroll to find the cache.

Parking is fine, but please avoid parking on the grass, particularly in winter.
Please keep to recognised footpaths (across the field)
