Village signs is a series of geocaches based on the ornate signs that depict the heritage, history and culture of the villages that put them up. Whilst technically not a village Epping does have not one but two village signs at each end of the market town.
Epping is a market town and civil parish in the Epping Forest district of the County of Essex. It is surrounded by the northern end of Epping Forest, and on a ridge of land between the River Roding and River Lea valleys. The weekly market, which dates to 1253, is held each Monday. Epping is twinned with the German town of Eppingen in north-west Baden-Württemberg.
The cache is not at the published co-ordinates, you will need to visit the village sign and find the answers to the following questions to solve the co-ordinates and find the cache.

This is a multi-cache and IS NOT at the published coordinates.
If anybody would like to expand the Village Sign Series, please do. I would ask that you let us know first at www.villagesignseries.co.uk so they can keep track of the Village Sign numbers and names to avoid duplication.
