Geocache Description:

Village Sign in Great Braxted.

The east-facing side shows a tree, rabbit, birds and an apple (ball) taking the bails off cricket stumps. The west-facing side shows a village pump, trees, birds, flowers and an ear of corn.

The place-name 'Braxted' is first attested in the Domesday Book of 1086, where it appears as Brachesteda. The name comes from the Old English 'braec', meaning 'newly-cultivated land'. Great Braxted is first attested (in Latin) as Magna Bracsted in 1206.

Count the number of ears of corn on the village sign = A

X = A*31+14

The cache can be found at N 51 47.X E 0 41.X

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.
