Geocache Description:

Kirtling along with Kirtling Green and Kirtling Towers is a dispersed settlement in the east of Cambridgeshire. It forms a civil parish with the nearby village of Upend to the north. From the 16th to the 19th centuries, Kirtling was known as Catlidge and Upend was originally called Upheme – old English for 'the up-dwelling'. Upend may once have been a separate village, but it was absorbed into Kirtling before the Norman Conquest of 1066.

The Saxon origins of the villages are represented by the house and warrior on the village sign:

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
