Geocache Description:


picture

 

The River Brant flows to the east of the village, where it is joined by the Sand Beck. The name itself means 'fortified settlement on the River Brant’.

The village has a very wide main street with many of the houses dating back to the coaching days of the 18th and 19th centuries when many of the residents were based in London and used the village for their country retreats.

An unusual building in the village is the converted barn in Meeting House Lane, built in 1701. Used as a meeting house by the Quakers, it retains its original furnishings.

Today, Brant Broughton is a large village with a mix of old and new houses. It has a primary school, retained fire station, pub, shop and village hall. It is still a farming village with many farms surrounding the village.

THE CACHE

 

Next to the village sign, look at the telegraph pole and the numbers carved into it. Replace the four numbers with the letters ABCD. Using this principle, you should be looking at ALBCDI.

The cache can be found at:

Village Signs Series

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.
