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 (normally on the village green!).

A 30ml tube.

Go to the published coordinates. Admire the sign, then look at the telegraph pole.

The numbers in the white circles = AB

Go to N 52° 08.(A-B)(B-6)(B/2) W 000° 03.B(B-1)(A-B)

Arrington is a village and civil parish in the South Cambridgeshire district of Cambridgeshire with a population of 415 at the time of 2011 census. The village is 6 miles (10 km) north of Royston, Hertfordshire and 9 miles (14 km) south-west of the county town of Cambridge.

Arrington is on the A1198 road, the old Roman Ermine Street. Around 950, the settlement's name was written as Earnningtone; in the 1086 Domesday Book it was spelled Erningtune. By the 13th century, the village was known as Aring(e)ton(e). The probable meaning was 'farmstead of the family or followers of a man called Earn(a)'. Flint tools have been found along the spring line around Church Farm.

The cache is only a few minutes walk from the village sign. Please do not go climbing all over the sign!

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.
