Geocache Description:

The Bracknell Ramble was a 14-waypoint mystery/multi which followed The Ramblers Route, a 26 mile/42km circular walking trail through the countryside around Bracknell. The walk follows footpaths, bridleways and tracks through varied scenery. Sadly the cache was archived in February 2008. The Bracknell Ramble Remembered is a short series of three caches using some of the original waypoints of The Bracknell Ramble in remembrance of our favourite hide.

This short mystery, which should take less than half an hour to complete, incorporates the start and finish of the original cache. Those who did The Bracknell Ramble and who have either good records or good memories will know exactly where this cache is and could go straight there. A word of caution, however: the letter-number translations used on this series are not necessarily the same as on the original cache.

Your starting point is the beautiful 11thC church of St Michael the Archangel, Warfield. The coordinates will take you to ample free parking in front of the cemetery. Please don't park in the church car park even if it's open, as it's usually locked except during services and you may find yourself locked in. For obvious reasons, parking may be a problem on Sundays.

To start the hunt you'll need to explore the exterior of the church and find the image on the left. Within a few metres, on the same wall, you'll find a plaque dedicated to a local worthy.
