How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
Village signs is a series of caches based on the ornate signs that depict the heritage, history and culture of the villages that put them up (normally on the village green!).
The old English name for Sawley was Sallé, meaning "hill where willow trees grow"
The village was originally built on the slightly higher ground around All Saints' Church.
The village sign depicts four pictures and the Erewash Coat of Arms.
The pictures show the Erewash Canal, a pair of shire horse attached to a plough, All Saints' Church and the Railway Bridge at Long Eaton Station.

AS A MARK OF RESPECT THE CACHE IS NOT LOCATED ON THE WAR MEMORIAL
Placed with the kind permission of Sawley Parish Council
BYOP. Tweezers may be required.
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.
