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 black 2ml tube

Yelling is a linear village and civil parish located around 6 miles (10 km) east of the town of St Neots and 10 miles (16 km) south of Huntingdon. The village was formerly part of the historic county of Huntingdonshire and now lies within the Huntingdonshire administrative district of Cambridgeshire.

Yelling has had a variety of spellings recorded through its history, including Gellinge (11th century), Gylling (12th-15th century) and Illyng (16th century). The name is thought to be derived from the manorial family Gill or Gell.

In A History of the County of Huntingdon: Vol 2, published in 1932, the village is noted for its 17th-century houses and cottages. Many of these are found on the High Street and include The Old Forge and the double-pile plan Church Farmhouse, built of local red brick.

Although a church in Yelling is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, the oldest part of the Grade II* listed Parish Church of the Holy Cross dates back to around 1190. It includes two original 13th century windows in the south aisle wall and south doorway. The noted evangelist Henry Venn was Yelling's vicar from 1771 until his death in 1797, and there is a plaque in his memory over the pulpit.

The cache is at 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.
