Geocache Description:

Mellis is a small village in Suffolk, England. It has the largest area of unfenced common land in England. Oliver Cromwell exercised his troops in Mellis. It once had a railway station on the main line between London and Norwich, and a small branch line that ran to nearby Eye.

Mellis Common is a 59 hectare nature reserve. In summer rare plants such as green-winged orchid, sulphur clover and adder's tongue fern flourish. The abundance of small mammals also makes the site a favourite hunting ground for barn owl and tawny owl.

The 14th-century parish church of St Mary, restored in 1859 and 1900, is a Grade II* listed building.

The cache is not hidden on the village sign.

As I'm celebrating my 50th birthday this year, I said that I would put out 50 caches/events to mark the occasion. This is 50 4 50 #13


If anybody would like to expand the Village Sign Series, please do. I would ask that you let Smokeypugs know first by filling in the contact form on the Village Sign Series website so they can keep track of the Village Sign numbers and names to avoid duplication.
