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!).


In order to work out the final location you will neeed the dates on the bench adjacent to the Village sign ABCD-EFGH

The final can be located at N52 25 (B-D) A (B-E)  E01 06 F E H


Winfarthing is a village in the county of Norfolk

The village is a prime example of a  linear village, being strung out along the B1077 road between Diss and Attleborough for around 2 km/1.25m. It is home to a public house, All Saints /church of England Primary school and St Mary's church. Until the early 1990s it had a small Post Office and shop. There is still a red post box at the site of the old Post Office with regular collections. Farming is the primary local business, with several dairy, arable and pig farms in the surrounding area.

King Henry VIII is known to have visited the area, and there was a large oak tree in the village at that time that was standing until the late 20th century.

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.
