Geocache Description:



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!).

This cache is a magnetic nano


Shefford is a town and civil parish located in the Central Bedfordshire district of Bedfordshire, England.

Roman remains were discovered in Shefford in the early nineteenth century.

The labouring-class poet Robert Bloomfield (the shoemaker poet) died in Shefford after his publishers went bankrupt and Bloomfield was forced to move from London into a cottage rented to him by a friend. In Shefford one of his daughters died in 1814 and his wife became insane. In order to support himself he tried to carry on business as a bookseller but failed and in his later years was reduced to making Aeolian harps which he sold among his friends. With failing eyesight his own reason threatened by depression he died in great poverty in the town in 1823. He was buried at Campton, as was usual for those dying in Shefford.


The cache is within sight of the village sign but not on it so please do not go climbing all over it!

If anybody would like to expand this series please do. I would just ask that you let SmokeyPugs know first so they can keep track of the Village Sign numbers and names to avoid duplication.
