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!). 

You are looking for a small camo'd screw top pot. Please replace carefully and as hidden as possible


Iver Heath is the location of Heatherden Hall, a Victorian estate with spectacular grounds. It was purchased by Lt. Col. Grant Morden, a Canadian financier, who transformed the mansion by adding a huge ballroom and Turkish bath. During the 1930s it became a retreat and private meeting place for politicians and diplomats. The agreement to form the Irish Free State was signed at Heatherden Hall. The Church of St Margaret was built in 1862. Iver Heath itself is centred around a triangle of roads. There is a major British film studio situated in Iver Heath. The studios have played host to many productions over the years from huge blockbuster films to television shows, commercials and pop music promos and is well known as the home of the Carry On..., the Superman, and the James Bond film franchises.

Black Park which adjoins the studio complex is, with a lake that extends over 530 acres (2.1 km²). Due to its proximity to t he film studios, Black Park was used for outdoor sequences in some of Hammer's Dracula films, a number of Carry On films, the Gerry Anderson Sci Fi series UFO and in the 1964 James Bond film Goldfinger.


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.
