Balcombe Back2Back Walk2 Bonus
How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
PLEASE NOTE; This series will be archived, and all the caches removed, on 30th June 2011, to make way for the new Balcombe Boundaries series, which will cover a lot of the same ground, but with all new hides.
This is a sort of twin series of two completely independent circular walks, both of about 3 miles, and both starting from the same place, but going in opposite directions. Each walk has 5 traditional caches and a bonus cache. Each of the 5 traditional caches has some of the numbers you will need for the bonus, written inside the cover of the log book. There is also a Bonus Bonus Cache. The co-ordinates for this can be found, half in each bonus cache.
The walks both start from the large free public car park in the lay-by just north of Balcombe Church. You could also easily arrive here by train. The church is about 10 minutes walk northwards from the station.
I have tried to hide the caches in positions that will show you which footpaths to take. The walks both keep to footpaths and quiet lanes. I think you should be able to complete both walks without using a map, if you do the caches in the correct order. Most of the caches are hidden in dense woodland, where the GPS signal is not very good, so I have tried to give very helpful hints, as I would be disappointed if you fail to find any of them.
If you have a dog, please keep it under close control, and do not let it chase any pheasants or ducks. There are many game birds in this area.
This is the Walk2 Bonus Cache. The co-ordinates given are for the Village Green, but you won't find the cache here. Two of the co-ordinates needed for the bonus cache can be found in each of the five Walk2 traditional caches.
The Walk2 Bonus Cache is located at N51.LM.NPQ W000.RS.TUV
After you have found the bonus cache, continue up the lane to the main road. Turn left and this road will take you back to the church.
