Geocache Description:

SS Peter and Paul Church is regarded as one of the most beautiful churches in Buckinghamshire. Set on a hill, it has good views towards the Chilterns (from the west of the church). The cache is in church grounds; permission from the vicar when placed being given.

The earliest reference to the church in the village is 1070, but the present building started to be-built in 1140 and took nearly 400 years to complete!
The first recorded vicar took office in 1209. In all, there have been 48 vicars in un-broken succession.
Above the south door the unique and world famous tympanum (semi circular decorative wall design) is located. Inside the church the font has been is regular use for 800 years, and continues to be used for infant baptisms.

This could be a 'cache n' dash', or the central point for completing the multi caches Westlington White Horse, and Discover Dinton. AR 12 Eider - Nearly There! is also nearby.

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