Geocache Description:

The church of St. Nicholas, Bracon Ash is one of the oldest and most interesting in East Anglia.

St. Nicholas, Bracon Ash

The present church of St. Nicholas is not the first one to stand on the site as the Doomsday Book of 1085 records a church and a rectory. It is a Grade 1 listed building with a nave dating from the 14th century and a 15th century chancel. An early 19th century drawing shows the church having a small castellated tower taken down as unsafe early in the 20th century.

The church looks quite ordinary from the outside but as you enter the first thing you see is the 14th century font. To the right of the nave is a side aisle and as you approach the pulpit, to the left is a winding short staircase which led to the rood screen, now removed.

Added during the 18th century, to the chancel north wall, is the Berney mausoleum. The entrance to which is through the doorway of an older mausoleum dating from the 16th century.

St. Nicholas is also noted for Thomas Tenison, the rector from 1661-2 who became Archbishop of Canterbury.

The cache is NOT located within the church grounds. There is no need to disturb anything.


As with any cache of this type, please be respectful to those who are here and those who visit.


If anybody would like to expand to this series please do, I would just ask that you could let Sadexploration know first so he can keep track of the Church numbers and names to avoid duplication
