Geocache Description:

This is the final cache of a series of five set on an eight-mile circular walk in the Charnwood Forest in Leicestershire. You will need to find the first four caches in the series to obtain the number clues to this cache. ** Hint updated Jan 2017 for 10th anniversary! **

***The co-ords given are not of the cache itself, they are for Mt St Bernard Abbey, the starting point for the Trail.***

Please do not steal the stamp from the cache, it is NOT a swap and should not be removed.

All five caches are letterbox hybrids, containing a log book, stamp and pen (ink pads removed Jan 17 as they had been leaking - please bring your own ink pad if you wish to use the stamp). Stamp the log book with your own stamp or leave a calling card or sticker if you have no stamp. If you have none of these then feel free to draw a cartoon of yourselves! If you have your own log book you can stamp this with the cache stamp, but the stamp and ink pad are not swaps, please leave them in the cache!

There is room for small items in the first four caches but as the containers are small there is limited room for swaps. However, small TBs and geocoins can be left, and the bonus cache is larger.

The five caches are:
1 – Mount St Bernard Abbey
2 – Blackbrook Reservoir
3 – White Horse Wood
4 – The Old Railway
5 – Bonus cache

The cache is placed at:

N 52* 44.(A + B) - 680

W 001* 20.(C + D) - 536

Please beware of muggles and ensure the cache is well-hidden before you leave.

If not parking at the monastery and walking here, parking can be found about ¼ of a mile from the cache at:

N 52* 44.(A + B) - 765:

W 001* 20.(C + D) - 426
