This cache is temporarily unavailable.

GizmoKyla: Hi

One of our roles as a reviewer is to monitor our region for caches that have been disabled for a long time, have had a reasonable number of DNFs or appear to require some maintenance. This is done through running a query on a database of all the caches in our region that looks for such things or by cachers submitting Needs Archiving logs as it appears maintenance may not be being carried out by the CO.

It would appear that this cache may benefit from some attention by the CO. May we ask that the owner checks the cache and sort out any problems with it or gives an indication of when it may be up and running again for people to find. If this cannot be done or if the CO no longer wishes to maintain the cache then the listing should be archived.

Of course if the CO has visited the cache recently then please post an Owner Maintenance log indicating that they have done so, enable the listing, and all should be fine.

In the future, if a listing is going to be disabled for a long time then posting periodic notes to the page (once per month or so) keeps people up to date with what is happening.

This isn't a requirement to fix the cache immediately but if it's unlikely to be done within 30 days could the CO post a note to the cache page giving an indication of when the maintenance will be done, or an indication of why it cannot be carried out.

If you plan on repairing this cache, please log a note to the cache (not email) within 30 days so we don't archive the listing for non-communication.

Emails to us may be missed or go astray and it would be a shame to archive the listing due to missing correspondence.

The Geocache Maintenance guideline explains a CO's responsibility towards checking and maintaining the cache when problems are reported.

Sadly if there is no response to this log after 30 days we may have to archive the cache.

Please note that the guidelines say that if a cache is archived by a reviewer or Geocaching HQ staff for lack of maintenance then it will not be unarchived - Unarchiving a Geocache

Geocache Description:

An inspiring viewpoint over the River Wye and surrounding countryside on The Wye Valley Walk.

In the late 18th Century The Wye Tour became the first British tourist resort. Artists and poets (forming the Picturesque Movement) and the well off came to visit the natural beauty of the Wye Valley. One of the must see places on the tour was Piercefield Park, which was landscaped by Valentine Morris.
A number of walks and features were created, such as The Grotto, The Alcove, The Platform and The Giant's Cave.

The likes of Wordsworth, Coleridge, Pope, Thackeray and Turner enjoyed the amazing views from the viewing platform before disappearing through the Giant's Cave to write / paint another masterpiece.

You do NOT need a torch to find the cache, but you might want to bring one anyway. The cache is NOT near the cliff edge.

As on so many of our caches; Keep children and pets under close supervision due to steep drops close to the path.

Please replace the cache carefully ensuring it is securely in place. Thanks.
