Geocache Description:

Village Signs is a series of caches based on the ornate signs that depict the heritage, history and culture of the villages that put them up*. This cache is a simple traditional cache, parking is also available on the side of the road.




Foxearth with 1683 acres, (roughly 2 ½ square miles), also runs along the River Stour for two lengths of its boundary. Here—as at Liston— the river is approximately thirty meters above sea level, (and in earlier times drove water mills in both parishes.) From the river however, a variety of gentle inclines and steep banked lanes lead to points in Foxearth—that are nearly thirty five meters higher—with sweeping, stretching views of exquisitely undulating countryside.

Foxearth’s deriving from East Saxon immigrants who gave directions by the ‘fox’s earth’ they saw

Foxearth and District History Society have a website which is weekly visited by hundreds from around the globe.


* The series was started by SmokeyPugs, and I am grateful for the original idea and their encouragement in expanding the series.

If anybody would like to expand to this series please do. I would just ask that you let SmokeyPugsknow first so they can keep track of the Village Sign numbers and names to avoid duplication.
