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!). The signs can be made of different materials from fibreglass to wood, from forged steel to stone. They can depict anything from local industry to historical events. The tradition probably started in Norfolk or Suffolk and has now spread across most of the country so we thought we would base a series on them!

About Tewin

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.

Tewin’s village sign is metal and painted by Brian Gaze of Walsham le Willows. It depicts village life with St Peter’s Church in the background, the River Mimram and various images of country life that include fruits, flowers and a badger.

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.
