Geocache Description:

This cache has been placed for the mardle in Griston on the 20Th


 

Griston is situated in the Wayland area of the Breckland district in the County of Norfolk and is mentioned in the Domesday Book. It is most famous for being the village in which the wicked uncle lived in the legendary tale of "The Babes in the Wood", first published in 1595 and featured on the village sign.

 
It's historic church of St. Peter and St. Paul dates back to the 14th century and the village pub dates back to 1741.
 
In more recent times it's adjacency to the land purchased by the government to create R.A.F. Watton during WW2 gave it an association with both the British and American servicemen operating from there.
 

Today it comprises some 250 dwellings, 2 of which are thatched and a small number of thriving light industrial units, as well as Wayland Prison which opened in 1985 and today houses up to 1000 inmates.

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.
