Geocache Description:

Another cache adding to the growing village sign series.

West Stow is a small village in West Suffolk. The village lies north of Bury St. Edmunds, south of Mildenhall and Thetford and west of the villages of Culford and Ingham in the area known as the Breckland. This area is located near the Lark River Valley and was settled from around AD 420-650.

Its name may come from Anglo-Saxon wēste stōw = "deserted place", rather than "western place".

West Stow is home to the West Stow Anglo-Saxon village where visitors may see reconstructed Anglo-Saxon houses, and often living history re-enactments of Dark Ages life.

If anybody would like to expand the series please contact Smokeypugs here

To get the final co-ords at GZ you need to look at the sign post to Icklingham and Mildenhall and add the mileage together which gives you A then solve the sums

A - 8 = U, A - 10 = V, A - 3 = W, A - 5 = X, A - 9 = Y, A - 5 = Z

Final Co-ords are N52 18.UVW E000 39. XYZ
