Geocache Description:


Southerndown

 

Southerndown is a small village at the western end of the Vale of Glamorgan approximately 5 miles from Bridgend.  It consists of mainly residential housing and holiday lets, a pub and a small restaurant.  Approximately 1/2 mile from the village is the villages crowning glory, the stunning beach at Dunraven Bay.  Since 1972 the coastline has been designated a "Heritage Coast" and is part of the Southerndown Coast SSSI.

Further information about Southerndown and the surrounding area can be obtained from the Southerndown Village web page.

Village signs is a series of caches based on the ornate signs that depict the heritage, history and culture of the villages that put them up (normally on the village green!). The signs can be made of different materials from fibreglass to wood, from forged steel to stone. They can depict anything from local industry to historical events. The tradition probably stated in Norfolk or Suffolk and has now spread across most of the country.


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.
