Never Mind the Bullocks Here's Clearwell Castle
How Geocaching Works

The first in a very short series relating to legendary musicians and their connections to the area.
Clearwell Castle is a Gothic house built in the early 18th century. After being restored in the 1960's the dungeons were used throughout the 70's by many legendary rock bands such as Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Bad Company, Van der Graaf Generator and Led Zeppelin to rehearse albums, tours and to record.
Locals in the Wyndham Arms (named after Thomas Wyndham, the original owner of Clearwell Castle) recall sharing a chat over a drink with Robert Plant and Jimmy Page in the pub.
The venue was also used for PR events and promo shoots for many other bands.
The castle is now used as a premier wedding venue and is, of course, haunted.
Clearwell Caves are very nearby.
Appropriate song titles slipped into log entries are actively encouraged.
The cache has been moved from it's original location due to a new fence restricting access.
The cache is accessible without removing any stones from the wall.
There is a Bench Mark on the church for anyone who is interested in that sort of thing.
P.S. There are no bullocks - and now no cows either.
(No hints available.)
