Geocache Description:

This cache is located in Sutton, Essex.

Sutton is a civil parish in the Rochford District of Essex. The civil parish of Shopland was amalgamated with Sutton in 1933 and became a hamlet. In 2011, the parish had a population of 135, the smallest in the District, although at the time of the Domesday Book it had a flourishing village with its own market and fair.

Sutton means "Southern farm", from Old English sūð (south) and tūn (farmstead). This probably refers to south of the River Roach. Shopland, actually means exactly what you think - "land with shop". This could be a reference to the markets that took place here in the past.

If anybody would like to expand the Village Sign Series, please do. I would ask that you let Smokeypugs know first at so they can keep track of the Village Sign numbers and names to avoid duplication.
