Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

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 magnetised bison. Hopefully the village sign itself we be replaced soon.

Iver village: The name 'Iver' is Saxon in origin recorded first in 893 and the parish church of St. Peter has Saxon work in the nave. Iver is mentioned in the Domesday Survey of 1086 with it's Saxon name of Evreham. The name means the settlement (“ham”) on the slope (“evre”) above the valley of the Colne Brook .  

Today Iver Village is the centre of an extended Parish. Apart from residential areas, local shopping facilities and first and junior schools there is still agriculture practised. Sheep and horses graze and chickens are reared. Light industry ranges from motor vehicle maintenance to food production. Warehouses make use of the nearby motorway network for the distribution of a diversity of products. The villagescape has changed much in the last two centuries but the heart of the village is a conservation area, designated in 1982.

To find this cache, look around you until you find the phone number for Iver Parish Council (try notice boards and the parish hall windows).

Let that number be ABCDE FGHIJK

The cache can be found a short walk away at N51 31.(C-G)(F-J)(B-K) W000 30.(F+B)(H-D)(I+K)

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.

This cache can be approached very easily by wheelchair users but the cache can not be retrieved or replaced without standing.
