Geocache Description:

A magnetic 35mm pot

St Andrew's is the mother church of the parish of Thornhaugh cum Wansford. (Wansford was a chapel until the beginning of the 20th century but when the chancel was added it became a parish church.) In the chantry chapel at St Andrew's is the fine Russell Monument of 1613. The recumbent armed effigy on a panelled altar tomb is of William, Lord Russell of Thornhaugh, the ancestor of the present Duke of Bedford. His son, Francis (or it could be a page), kneels at his feet and the kneeling figures of his brothers and sisters are on each side of the tomb chest. There is a ring of five bells. In 2010 an annexe was added which contains a toilet for the disabled, a servery and the new boiler. This was achieved with the help of Landfill Tax and additional donations. “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 page found via the Bookmark list”
