Geocache Description:

St Mary's Church, Old Linslade

The church of St Mary's at Old Linslade is one of the oldest buildings in Leighton Buzzard and Linslade, dating back to the 12th century. It was the parish church of Linslade for nearly 700 years until the coming of the canal and railway revolutions led to  the village migrating to its present location adjoining Leighton Buzzard  and St Barnabas was built to cater for this much larger town, leaving the church now known as St Mary in Old Linslade isolated and standing guardian over what is still the parish burial ground. The church was nearly declared redundant in the 1980s but was saved by the Friends of St Mary's who voluntarily maintain the church and the churchyard. The church consists of a chancel, nave, west tower and south porch. The chancel is around 24 feet long by 12 feet with the nave adding 45 feet by about 19 feet in width. The tower is about 10 feet by 11 and around 35 feet high.

There is a small car park at the church its self, or alternatively there is a slightly larger car park next to the canal.

The cache is not in the church ground but on a public footpath which runs from the graveyard towards the canal.You will need tweezers to access the logbook.
