Geocache Description:


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

Woodhall Spa Village Sign



The sign depicts the Tower on the Moor a hunting lodge built by 3rd Baron Ralph Cromwell in about 1440.

The sign was designed, carved and painted by Edmund Czajkowski & Son Ltd in 1991

There is no public access to the tower.

The road is busy so please park carefully and respectfully.

The cache is not hidden at the published coordinates.

To find the Cache some research will be needed.

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.
