Geocache Description:

About Village Sign Caches

This cache belongs to the Village Sign Series, a series of caches based on ornate signs that depict the heritage, history and culture of the villages that put them up (generally 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!

More information and statistics can be found at the Village Signs Website

VS Colston Bassett Village Sign

Directly outside the Village Hall, this has to be a 2 part Cache. You will find the Cache about a quarter of a mile away at N 52° 53.ABC W 0° 57.DEF .

On the Front of the Village Sign Post is a plate explaining it's design. The numbers you require are the number of letters in a word on a given line. e.g, Second Line Second Word would be given as L2W2.

A= L4 W8

B= L1 W9

C= L1 W6

D= L6 W7

E= L8 W9

F= L9 W1

You are looking for a screw top tube.

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