Huge Mess: This one had got damp and manky and I can't guarantee to maintain it regularly so it's time to archive it. Thanks to all who have visited.

How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

A plastic box geocache with a clip-on lid. Inside are several (identical) laminated puzzle cards. Please take one away with you as you'll need it to find the Weston Head-Scratcher final cache. Good boots or wellies will be essential.

Purists among you might have objections to the title of this cache because the cross is only green if you're using a recent OS map and the puzzle is not a code but a cipher. Other than that it should all make perfect sense!

This cache can be approached from several directions along lanes and bridle paths. Please stick to these wide bridle paths. Actually, if it remains as muddy in places as it is at the moment (March) you may well become stuck to the paths! Good parking can be found in the layby at the co-ords below, but you'll have to walk along the pavement of the busy A370 for a short distance and cross over before you reach the start of the bridle path. If you don't fancy that, you could try your luck in the lanes round about, but be sure not to block any gateways or passing places.

As ever, please be stealthy when retrieving and replacing the cache.

NB: Please don't drive to the cache site. Although they are not signposted as such, the OS 1:25,000 map has the tracks near the cache marked as "Restricted Byways", which are not open to motor vehicles.
