Geocache Description:

Brinton is a small village 10.8 miles east north east of the town of Fakenham, 13.1 miles south west of Cromer .  It can be found  in the Domesday Book of 1086 under the name ‘’Bruntuna’’, and it was said to be in the ownership of Bishop William. 

The above coordinates will take you to the village sign.  The cache is not here but you will need to answer a few questions (see below) from the information on the sign.

The village is situated in a shallow valley and the dwellings site either side of quiet narrow lanes. In the village is Brinton Hall which was constructed in the Georgian era to replace an earlier 16th-century house. The house seen today was rebuilt 1822 by Brereton family. The interior has a fine wainscot staircase, installed in 1911. Work at Brinton Hall including remodelling of west front and renovation of all interior rooms has won awards.  In the Grounds there are formal gardens, the hall also has a walled kitchen garden with a hot greenhouse. The property is surrounded by parkland with ha-ha wall, lake, woods and meadows. The village and some of its houses were once used as a backdrop for the BBC television series Dangerfield.

The parish church is dedicated to St Andrew and parts date back to the 14th century.  The church register dates from 1547. The church tower dates from c.1400 and has one bell. There is a statue of Saint Andrew in a niche above the Transept which dates from the Medieval period. The statue only survives because it had been screened with plasterwork to hide it. It was rediscovered in 1871.

Look carefully at the village sign and the information close by.

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..
