Great Shelford

Great Shelford is a village located approximately 4 miles (6.4 km) to the south of Cambridge, in the county of Cambridgeshire, in eastern England. In 1850 Great Shelford parish contained 1,900 acres (7.7 km2) intersected by the river Cam. The population in 1841 was 803 people. By 2001, this had grown to 3,949 and by the Census 2011 to 4,233. The suburb was deemed Britain's twenty-second richest suburb by The Daily Telegraph in 2011.

Great Shelford is twinned with Verneuil-en-Halatte, in the Oise département of France. Trips to Verneuil-en-Halatte are run by the Shelford Twinning association. President of the United States Barack Obama traced his ancestry to the village in 2009, bringing the village into the national media.

To find the cache look at the sign. How many churches are on the sign? This is A.

The cache can be found at N 52° 08.(A+6)(A+7)(A-A) E 000° 08.(A+3)A(A+4)

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.
