sponge_3: The sign, sadly, looks like it will not be returning. It is currently in someone's garden and needs extensive repairs before it is resited. There's no guarantee this will be in public anyway and with no timescale for the repairs, I am reluctantly archiving this VS cache. I have collected in the container and will reuse it at another of my hides.

Geocache Description:


North Muskham

 

The village appears in the Domesday Book as Muscham in the hundred of Lythe.

North Muskham was a large ancient parish, which also included the villages of Bathley and Holme. Until about 1575 the River Trent ran further east, but there was then a cataclysmic flood which changed the course of the river. Holme was therefore separated by the river from the rest of the parish. In 1866 Holme and Bathley became separate civil parishes.

North Muskham has two churches, St Wilfrid and a Methodist chapel. It also has a primary school and one pub.

Further of note, North Muskham has a very rare post box. It is one of only 15 in the UK of that particular model and can be found on Main Street.
