Mad H@ter: Sadly I think grang is absolutely correct, in fact I thought that I had already archived it!
Hopefully we will be in the area again soon (or I shall be in trouble from my mum [:O]), so will think about a replacement then.

Geocache Description:

This cache may be quite difficult to locate due to the overgrown and unmanaged nature of this small woodland, and likely to be particularly difficult in summer due to tree cover and nettles. You may want to refer to the spoiler picture!

UPDATE: This area has been the subject of a lot of brush clearance and a general tidying up , but this is at a cost as the area has now been flooded creating new obstacles and difficulties . We have increased the difficulty and terrain ratings to reflect this, so good luck with the hunt and try not to get wet .

The cache is located in a small area of overgrown woodland, near to Grandpa Phillimore's house. If you spot him please be careful as his grandchildren don't call him Grumpy for nothing . The name of the nearby village "Hordle" is a short form of "Horde Hill" and refers to the hill now known as "Golden Hill". The name is thought to derive from stories of pirate activity in the area and a cache of treasure buried in the hill. So... if you search very carefully you might find a second cache, but no clues for that one I'm afraid . The cache is a small (about 3" diameter x 6" high) round screw top container that will take small swaps and travel bugs.
