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 stated 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 and statistics can be found at the Village Signs Website
Timberland Village Sign
The sign was erected in 2002 to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II and is in memory of local farmer and landowner Charles Lawrence Bembridge BE DL. He farmed in Timberland and bred the Anwick herd of pedigree Lincoln Red cattle
The sign depicts the Lincoln Red cattle and the Carr Dyke which is close by and runs from Lincoln to Peterborough and was built reputably by the Romans.

If anybody would like to expand the Village Sign Series please do. I would just ask that you let Smokeypugs know first at www.villagesignseries.co.uk so they can keep track of the Village Sign numbers and names to avoid duplication.
