Geocache Description:

A small Tube.  West Dereham has two village signs so here is a cache for the second one

West Dereham is generally acknowledged as the birthplace of Hubert Walter (circa 1160-1205) who was successively Dean of York, Bishop of Salisbury and Archbishop of Canterbury during the reign of Richard I. During the reign of King John, Hubert was Lord Chancellor (1199-1205). He founded an Abbey in West Dereham in 1188. By the 13th century it was one of the largest religious houses in Norfolk. Following the Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1539 the site was granted by Henry VIII to Thomas Dereham of Crimplesham.
There are no remains of the abbey buildings today although signs of foundations and earthworks are visible as crop marks on aerial photographs.Horiso

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.
