Geocache Description:


Upton 1

 

Upton 2

 

In 1889, Upton was described as sitting on a bend in the main road, "on the summit of a hill which commands a fine view of the Trent Valley". The village had a population of 425 at the 2011 census. The parish church of St Peter & St Paul is C13th, built in the Perpendicular style. The tower of the church has previously been used as a dovecote. There is also a village hall and a pub. Upton is also the home of the British Horological Institute based at Upton Hall. What once was the village shop and Post Office is now a private house.

If anybody would like to expand the Village Sign Series, please do. I would ask that you let Smokeypugs know first at www.villagesignseries.co.uk so they can keep track of the Village Sign numbers and names to avoid duplication.
