This is a traditional cache.
ST. JOHN THE EVANGELIST CHURCH is in the lovely village of Langley Upper Green and as the name suggests is on high land with wonderful views of the surrounding countryside. The evidence of a small Norman church survives in the present building – the south doorway, a north doorway now blocked and a small narrow window in the north wall of the nave. The windows were enlarged and a tower built in the 14th century, a hammerbeam roof installed in the 15th century and the chancel rebuilt in the 17th century. The addition of a porch and vestry in the 19th century has added very little to the original size. Langley Church was a chapel of Clavering, and has always been part of the Clavering benefice, except for a brief period between 1875 and 1928. At the heart of the village is the cricket green and village hall. The cache is a micro located along a Public Footpath to the rear of the church. As you turn off for the church take the left hand fork known as The Causeway which leads up to the Church gate where there is parking. Walk into the Churchyard and bear left across the grass to an exit and on to the footpath. Take time to enjoy the lovely views if you can from the Church grounds. More often than not you will see a very large herd of 50 or so deer whilst out driving in the area. Good luck. “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. There is also a Church Micro Stats & Information page found via the Bookmark list”
