Please use STEALTH while retrieving this cache

If anybody would like to expand to 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.

The town was first recorded in the charter by which King Offa granted it to St Albans Abbey in 792/3 as Wineshauue, which means Wine's Burial Mound

The Domesday Book of 1086 records it as Weneslai.

A late Celtic copper torc has been found here, and also a silver drinking-cup of late Roman design.
