Geocache Description:

Leighton-Linslade is a parish made up of two townships. Leighton Buzzard itself is well known as a quarry town (as well as having a "Gossards" factory and a large fork-lift truck manufacturers). Linslade itself is mainly residential. Many of the caches cover what is now regarded as "Old Linslade" which is where a lot of the original village stood.


If you wish to do this as a trail here's how I did it! and here's the list of caches!

Leighton-Linslade Coat of Arms

Before being brought together under a single Town Council, Linslade was in Buckinghamshire and Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire. An urban series of caches celebrating the history of Leighton-Linslade will be published soon.

The Leighton-Linslade Trail is an approximately 6 mile circular walk. Some parts of may can be done as a "cache-n-dash" and others can be picked off as mini-walks. Either way, it's up to you how you play the game!

The walk involves urban and rural walks, canals and fields. Children should be kept on leads and dogs and other family will (at many points) need to be watched carefully. Like all caches, there are dangers and pitfalls that may need to be addressed. None of these caches are in dangerous places (hopefully) although some are near water (not too near!)

This area is known as "Old Linslade" and (hopefully) should be much quieter as a new bypass has been built. The farm, down the lane, caused the lane to be closed off as it was being used to illegally store fuel. This storage facility began leaking very badly and only prompt action stopped an environmental disaster. Today, it is used as a storage facility for a travelling fair

This cache is a small plastic cliplock type box with some goodies
