Geocache Description:

I have inherited this cache from Pat and Peter. Thank you for allowing me to adopt the cache- the cache notes are theirs. This is my most local cache, I live in the small cottage across the road! Container is just about the right size for geocoins and other small trackables.

The church at Newbold Verdon is dedicated to St. James. There is evidence that a church existed as early as the thirteenth century and, indeed, Niklaus Pevsner has declared the oldest parts of the church to be Norman. In 1811, the church had a tower holding two bells, a nave, chancel and south porch. There was a plain, octagonal font. Repairs were carried out in the mid 1830s at a cost of £700. In 1899, the architects Goddard and Co. oversaw further refurbishment to chancel, nave, north aisle and chancel aisle, and south vestry. A Spire by L.G.D. Ogden was added in 1960.

This is a small cache located near the Church where my parents were married in 1944.

The cache is located outside of the church, so you will not need to go inside the church premises to locate or retrieve the cache. When replacing the cache please make sure it is well hidden. Stealth will be required.

Congratulations to rr300tdi for FTF and to Hathi for a very close STF.

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
