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 micro tube.



The village, situated on the old Great North Road, was bypassed by the A1 in 1962. A roundabout connects the village with the bypass and B661 (Perry Road for nearby Grafham Water). Accessible through the village are The Offords via the B1043. Brampton is accessed through a grade-separated junction just north of the village on the A1. A long-planned improvement scheme for the A14 may see the road diverted north of the village to run parallel with the A1.

Formerly on the Great North Road (A1) out of London, Buckden is the location of Buckden Towers (or Buckden Palace), one of the many former residences of the Bishop of Lincoln. Buckden Towers also held Catherine of Aragon for a short period of time before she was moved to Kimbolton Castle.


The cache is near the village sign, but not on it. 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..
