Geocache Description:

Finchingfield is a village in the Braintree district in north-west Essex.

There has been a settlement in Finchingfield since historical records of the area began. There also is archaeological evidence for a Roman villa 400 metres south-south-west of the village church. Finchingfield was recorded in the Domesday Book as Phincingfelda.

Finchingfield was the home and is the burial place of Dodie Smith, whose books include The Hundred and One Dalmatians (1956).

Take time to have a look around this is a lovely village to visit.

You will find three numbers on the village sign. Let the first set be XYZ and the second set be ABCD.

The final location can be found at N 51.58 B/D A Z E 000.27 Y C-D B.

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.
