Geocache Description:

Another in the Village signs series started by Smokeypugs.


The village of Fawkham is in North Kent, within Sevenoaks District. Fawkham is a rural parish with 220 homes and a population of just over 500 people. The village has a green with a pub, a village hall, farms, several schools, livery yards, a golf course, a private hospital and a large hotel with a spa.

The village's main road winds down a picturesque valley and walkers benefit from access to several bluebell woods managed by the Woodland Trust. The parish church of St Mary's dates back to the 12th century and there is an annual village fete, with dog show, held in its grounds.

And so to the cache. You should be standing next to the village sign and be able to see a couple of brass plaques on it. The below info you'll find on them.

About Village Sign Caches

 

This cache belongs to the Village Sign Series, a series of caches based on ornate signs that depict the heritage, history and culture of the villages that put them up (generally 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!

More information, bookmarks and statistics can be found at the Village Signs Website

If anybody would like to expand the Village Sign Series, please do.
I would ask that you request a number for your cache first at www.villagesignseries.co.uk
so we can keep track of the Village Sign numbers and names to avoid duplication.
