Geocache Description:

Village signs is a series of caches based on the ornate signs that are erected to announce the village name to strangers and locals alike. They are typically placed along the principal road or in a prominent location such as a village green or close by the church. The design often depicts a particularly characteristic feature of the village or a scene from its history, heritage, or culture. 

Sitting atop some off Suffolk's most dramatic coastline atop the cliffs, Pakefield is a thriving village, close enough to Lowestoft for access to many Suffolk attractions, and yet self-contained enough for a great weekend hideaway. You can explore the rich history of St. Margaret's & All Saints Church, or head down to the beach, dotted with fishing boats and accessible from several points from the village.

Pakefield most likely gets its name from Pacca's or Pagga's field, named after a local landowner. What was a small community of around 300 people in the early 19C now has more than five times that number, a quiet haven south of nearby bustling Lowestoft.

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
