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!).

This cache is a 30ml tube

Henlow is a village and civil parish in the district of Central Bedfordshire in Bedfordshire, England.

Henlow is mentioned (with a degree of dispute recorded) in the Domesday Book. The entry reads: Haneslau(ue)/Hanslau(e): Herfast from Nigel d'Aubigny; Hugh from Walter of Flanders; Widder and Bernard from Azelina, Ralph Tailbois' wife (Hugh de Beauchamp claims from her, stating it was never in her dowry); Alric. 2 mills.

RAF Henlow is located nearby, but is nearer to the village of Stondon. The civilian settlement of Henlow Camp has grown to surround the RAF station.

The cache is NOT at the published coordinates but a short distance away.

This is a VERY simple multi cache.

Just visit the published coordinates and check out the plaque on the village sign.

On it you will see a year. Call this ABCD.

The cache can be found at N 52° (C-B)(D-A).A(A+A+D)A W 000° A(A+D+D).A(A+A+D)(A+D)

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.
