Geocache Description:

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 signs can be made of different materials from fibreglass to wood, from forged steel to stone. They can depict anything from local industry to historical events. The tradition probably stated in Norfolk or Suffolk and has now spread across most of the country so we thought we would base a series on them!

Bow Brickhill is a village and civil parish in the Borough of Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, England. It is a short distance south east of Milton Keynes itself.

The village name is a combination of Brythonic and Old English words for 'hill' (Brythonic: breg, Anglo Saxon hyll). The prefix 'Bow' comes from an Anglo Saxon personal name, Bolla. The various names of the village given in historic records were Brichelle, Brichull, Bolle Brichulle, Bellebrikhulle, Bolbrykhull, and Bolbryghyll.

The sign is one of a pair at each end of the village. They were erected late 2016 / early 2017. Like many, they are double sided. The rear on thanks drivers for driving carefully. .

The cache is a magnetic 30ml tube.

Happy caching!

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.

Congratulations to Bondoer_and_Ann on being First To Find.
