The Badgers Mount village web site notes that:
“Badgers Mount is a small village/hamlet in Kent made up of around 260 properties. Situated between Sevenoaks, Bromley and Orpington, just south of London. It is within the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and largely within the London (Metropolitan) Green Belt”.
The Badgers Mount 'Millennium' Village Sign was originally placed outside the Post Office in Old London Road in 2001 and had winter and spring pictures on its two faces. The Post Office has now gone and in 2011 the sign was re-located on the verge by the A224 and Old London Road roundabout. The new sign only has the spring scene. It is understood that this is because the deterioration of the winter scene had made it difficult to replicate.
The village sign is within sight of the cache – go and have a look at the badger!
Parking is awkward – we parked on Old London Road.
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 started 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, bookmarks and statistics can be found at the Village Signs Website
If anybody would like to expand the Village Sign Series, please do.
I would ask that you request a number for your cache first at www.villagesignseries.co.uk
so we can keep track of the Village Sign numbers and names to avoid duplication.
