Tewin is an ancient village whose history dates back to Saxon times circa 449 AD, and beyond. There are indications that people settled here many hundreds of years before the Romans invaded Britain. The name Tewin comes from the Anglo Saxon word "Tew", God of War, Ing means enclosure or meadow - the name varies over the centuries and in the Doomsday Book it is Tewinge and Theinge, and in the 16th century Tewinge, Tewing and Twying.
Tewin has most of the features typical of English country villages, a Church, two pubs, a village green, a red telephone box and a village shop.

Stealth may be required due to location. Please bring your own pen and suitable equipment – tweezers may be required to retrieve the log sheet from the cache and you will need to be able to roll it back up!
Cache placed with kind permission of Tewin Parish Council and a big thank you to Smokeypugs for coming up with (and maintaining) such a great series!
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.
