Geocache Description:

A magnetic tube

There were very few Catholics living in Raunds in 100 bit by 1926 the priest from Rushden came every Sunday to say Mass in a private house in Marshalls Road. His taxi fare cost £1 and the congregation subscribed this amount. In 1948, the Travelling Mission of the Catholic Diocese of Northampton established a centre in Raunds but Mass was only provided, in a private house, once a year. At about this time, a bus was hired every Sunday to take the faithful to Mass at Rushden - the garage only charging one pound and ten shillings for this convenience. By 1967, the number travelling on a weekly bus had reached 40 and the Masses at Raunds, provided by the Travelling Mission, has increased to four per year held in various locations including different private houses and finally the Labour Hall.
