Geocache Description:

Parking at Benthall Hall in Broseley (TF12 5RX), updated 17/1/09 with an ammo box. This cache follows the public footpath up to the "Only Girls Allowed" cache, then takes the trail down to the left. You then need to take a sharp right (at marked waypoint), down the mud footpath into Benthall woods (see photo of the path to the cache).


This is a fantastic woodland walk, linking up on a round circuit with other nearby cache (once you have found the cache, keep following the path down untill you reach the woodern steps up to your right). Benthall Hall is a comfortable country house located on the edge of Broseley surrounded by parkland and Benthall Woods. At the cache location, you are rewarded with a great view over the Irondridge (Buildwas) Power Station.

Established 1965, people have mixed feelings about this Power Station site, they either hate it or like it. As you go down river, think about the fact that this was an area of great industry and power and does this station fit in? Aesthetically, the cooling towers are constructed to blend into the Gorge and in a way fit in with the use of the Gorge all those years ago almost looking a bit like the old pottery and tile kilns. They also create an interesting environment within the Gorge, because with the high sides of woodland on either side of the river and the warmer waters of the river along with the steam emanating from the towers and circulating within the Gorge, it creates an almost tropical atmosphere which allows some plants to grow in gardens that should not actually be surviving in this area.
