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

Geocache Description:

The co ordinates provided are for a parking area on a verge. This is opposite the entrance to a riding school. As very young children are being trained to ride here please take care not to do anything that may frighten the horses as they leave the livery stables.


A walk down a rather spooky bridleway will lead you eventually to this cache situated in woodland on the Heart of England Way in an area known as Meriden Shafts..


You will, of course, have to solve some relatively easy clues to obtain the co-ordinates.  The clues are all connected to birds and mainly music.


The cache is a small airtight container in a camo bag.



1.         An album by Gerry Rafferty with a bird in the title. (Second word).  Subtract 1 from the number of letters.

4.         Take away Woody the … from the bird that sang in Berkeley Square.
