This is the Surrey leg of Little Quest. For more information about this country-wide network of caches, please click on the "Little Quest" banner above. Inside the cover of the logbook are the co-ordinates you will need to note down to allow you to complete the whole of "The Little Quest".
At 644 feet (197 metres), Hascombe Hill is the seventh highest point in Surrey. In the 1st century BC it was the site of an Iron Age fort. In the early 19th century it became an important naval telegraph station, using a mechanical form of semaphore to communicate with Netley Heath in Surrey on one side and Blackdown in Sussex on the other. A chain of such stations linked London with Portsmouth.
The cache is located just off the higher of two paths around the fort. The round trip is around 1.5 miles. There is a terrific view from the top that makes the effort well worthwhile.

My thanks to Stephen (Brambler) for suggesting this prime Surrey location.
