Geocache Description:


Village signs is a new series of caches based on the ornate signs that depict the heritage, history and culture of the villages that put them up (normally on the village green!).

The signs can be made of different materials from fibreglass to wood, from forged steel to stone. They can depict anything from local industry to historical events. The tradition probably stated in Norfolk or Suffolk and has now spread across most of the country so we thought we would base a series on them!

Northall is a hamlet in the civil parish of Edlesborough Northall and Dagnall, in Buckinghamshire, England.

This large 16th Century hamlet straddles the A4146 road halfway between Edlesborough and Billington, Bedfordshire.

The village was formerly part of the Ashridge Estate of the Earls and Dukes of Bridgwater. Like nearby Slapton it has a few very high gabled cottages, with thickly latticed window panes, which are indicative of having been designed by the architect retained by the estate in the 19th century.

The hamlet contains some recently built houses, but most houses are predominantly 19th century.

Unveiled 1st October 2011 The pictorial village sign in Northall was put up as a part of the EDaN (Edlesborough, Dagnall and Northall) Beautification Project and includes 2 benches for locals to sit and relax.

The cache is a key safe type hidden close by!


If anybody would like to expand this series please do. I would just ask that you let SmokeyPugs know first so they can keep track of the Village Sign numbers and names to avoid duplication.
