Brenzett is a village situated in the Walland Marsh area of Shepway, Kent. The 2011 census recorded a population of 379 residents and a coverage of 1,090.61 Hectares.
The village sign, erected in 2012 depicts the villages aeronautical and agricultural history and also gives a nod to the marsh environment on which it sits. An aeroplane filing over a ewe and a lamb is depicted within the iron insert. Long grass is also prominant. The black metal insert sits in a wooden exterior frame and post.
The village is the home to an aeronautical museum which exhibits the remains of various World War II combat aircraft that have been excavated from the surrounding marshland and includes a de Havilland Vampire T.11 and an English Electric Canberra B.2. Brenzett was also the site of a Royal Air Force Advanced Landing Ground (ALG) airfield during the Second World War, RAF Brenzett, at one time operating North American Mustang IIIs.
The parish church is dedicated to St Eanswythe and is located on the road to Brenzett Green, a remnant of the original A2070 to Hamstreet and Ashford which was rebuilt entirely in the 1990s. The village no longer has a public house. The "Fleur de Lis" where this cache can be found went out of business and now sadly stands empty and boarded up.
Brenzett was the setting for E. Nesbit's ghost story Man-size in Marble from the Grim Tales collection of 1893.
The cache is smaller than a 35mm film pot, but larger than a traditional black metal nano.
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.
