Geocache Description:


St Peter's Church, Brandon

The Doomsday Survey reports that there was a church in Brandon in 1086AD, but it is almost certain that the earlier parts of the present church are late 13th century.  It is most likely that the font dates from the same time or slightly earlier.  The tower and westernmost bay of the south aisle (now the children's corner) are late 14th c.  Finally, the porch which contains a holy water stoup, is probably 16th c.   The church is constructed from flint and stone in a mixture of Early English, Decorated and Perpendicular styles.     The tower contains six fine bells. The stained glass windows are much admired, the finest of  which is in the north wall of the chancel.     In the churchyard are a few plague graves and near the east gate are two stone 16th c. effigies. A sundial on the tower was erected in 1725, and there are several gargoyles including a Cheshire cat.

There are some really strange looking monuments and three of which hold the clues to the final location of this cache which is not with the grounds of the church.

Please bring a pen and tweezers.
