Boxworth is a village in South Cambridgeshire not far from the rapidly expanding developments of Cambourne and Northstowe. It is situated about 8 miles to the north-west of Cambridge. It falls under the Bar Hill Ward. It is within the diocese of Ely. The village covers an area of 1,053 ha. (2,602 a.) Boxworth is a relatively small village, with around 100 houses.

In the 1664 Hearth Tax a large house belonging to a gentleman, Mr. Killingworth, accounted for eight hearths at Boxworth. It has today one public house from the 1760s or earlier.

The cache is just over the road from the village sign so please do not go climbing all over the it!

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..
