Kiwi Nomad: Thanks to another geocacher I have seen photos of the final area and it has totally changed since I was last there.
I am currently without a car so unable to get back to the area. This cache has already been replaced once due to gardens being changed.

I think the statue deserves a cache but will leave it to someone living a bit closer to place a new one.
