Geocache Description:

A continuation down the Hamble from Hamble Ramble – Gorse or a short stroll up from Warsash. It’s up to you.

Please note changed coordinates as of May 25, 2010

A small cylinder shaped container covered in camo tape with room for logbook only. Bring your own pen/pencil. Parking as for Hamble Ramble – Lower Swanwick at N 50° 52.819 W 001° 17.798 or at N 50° 51.230 W 001° 18.380. Level gravel paths suitable for off-road buggies. Can be busy so stealth may be required retrieving the cache. Why not take a trip on the Warsash Ferry over to Hamble for lunch while you are in the area?

Permission to place this cache received from the Senior Ranger for Hook-with-Warsash Nature Reserve of the Hampshire County Council Countryside Service.

Please remember to bring your own pen or pencil in case there isn't one in the cache at the time of your visit. One of the fundamental understandings of geocaching is that visitors sign the log so if you can't do that you can't count it as a find......
