Geocache Description:

A traditional cache in the beautiful River Meese valley near Great Bolas. The cache is at the site of an ancient drover's cottage.

The cache is hidden at the site of an ancient drover's cottage. The path by the cache is a very old drover's route and they had a shelter at the cache location. If you look closely in the above picture you can clearly see the holes in the bluff where the roof trusses were.

Looking out from the cache location you see a lovely water meadow which is absolutely teeming with wild flowers at the moment. Behind that is the lovely River Meese.

We recommend making this into a circular walk. Suggested parking is on the hard standing at the side of the road in Great Bolas (approx N52 47.318 W2 31.347). Head towards the obvious church tower, which is the church of St John's at Bolas Magna. Follow the track down to the stile at N52 47.139 W2 31.856 before continuing to our Meesechievous - One Good Tern... cache.

From there, follow the Tern round to where the River Tern and River Meese meet at approx N52 47.025 W2 32.232. Then onwards to our Meesechievous - About Tern and Meesechievous - Wild Drover caches. Continue along the Public Footpath, which eventually leads back to the road (the footpath goes through someone's back garden at Bolas Bridge cottage so please respect the owner's privacy and we'd ask that you do not do the cache at night, for obvious reasons). Follow the road back up the hill to the suggested parking location.
