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 so we thought we would base a series on them!
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.
Stanstead St Margarets is a village adjacent to Stanstead Abbotts and the two are separated by the train line. Further up the road is Great Amwell. The Greenwich Meridian passes through Stanstead St Margarets as can be seen by Meridian Obelisk just over the New River.
About Wherigo Reverse Caches:
Wherigo Reverse Caches were inspired by the original Reverse Geocache Puzzle Box please view the video below to get an an idea how this is going to play.
Instead of using that box of tricks to find this reverse Whereigo cache you will use the cartridge which you will have to download and install on your device before you go out to find this reverse cache.
The cartridge for the Wherigo version was developed by Waldmeister and has been re-used in many difference caches.
About this Geocache:
To find the cache you will need to download this Wherigo cartridge to a compatible device.
This cartridge will tell you how far it is to the final location but not the direction - you will have to work that out for yourself.
So far so good? In order to activate it you need to enter three 6-digit numbers and you will need to go to the published coordinates to find out what they are.
So far so good?
The three six-digit numbers to activate the cartridge are usually given on the cache pages but we have made this one so cachers have to visit the posted coordinates and work out the required numbers. To find the cache note some numbers from the village sign.
The locomotive number is ABCD
S is the number of swans on one side of the sign
M is the month that the sign was erected in the year 20YZ
H is B / S
Once you have registered the find on the WhereIGo web page you'll be given a code to allow you to create your own reverse webcaches.
