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



Great Paxton is a village near Little Paxton in Huntingdonshire (part of Cambridgeshire), England, north of St Neots. The grade I listed cruciform Saxon church, dedicated to the Holy Trinity, dates from the 11th century. The village shares the Great Ouse valley with the river and the East Coast Railway Line. It, and its church, are one of the oldest recorded areas in East Anglia, with records dating back to about 100BC

Curiously, Great Paxton is much smaller than Little Paxton with a population of around 800. There is one public house in the village and there is a primary school which is a Church of England school.

The village expanded in the 1970s through to the 1990s during which time the population went up from around 100 to its current number.


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..
