Geocache Description:

The Church of St. Andrew in Colyton is one of the five Anglican Churches which make up the Holyford Mission Community in East Devon.

This was originally the site of a Saxon church, of which the only thing remaining is a lovely Saxon Cross dating from circa 900-1000 AD. The cross was discovered after an extensive fire in 1933, having been built into the west face of the tower, and is now on display in the South Transept.

An unusual feature is the Octagonal Lantern built onto the square Norman tower, and it is believed to have been inspired by the tower of Bruges Town Hall, likely to have been familiar to the wool merchants of Colyton.

Other interesting features include the West Window, which is one of the largest to be seen in a Parish Church, and the two massive Brass Chandeliers in the Nave, each bearing 36 candles.

The cache is not within the Church grounds but is nearby. There is only room for the log, so please bring your own pen. As this is a town centre location, please use stealth when retrieving and replacing the cache.

There is usually space to park in nearby streets, but there is also a Pay and Display car park nearby.

Congratulations to SBSD for FTF
