Geocache Description:

A series of eight straightforward caches all located within the environs of Holmwood Common. See the National Trust website for additional information.

The above co-ordinates are for a convenient car park from whence to start and finish the series. If you are only doing part of the series there are many other parking opportunities round the edge of the common - pick one that suits you.

Remember to visit HC 4.5 Holmwood Common Extra on your way round and also HC 5.5 Holmwood Common Extra.

The National Trust have kindly given permission for these caches. In return they ask that we all keep as far as possible to existing paths and tracks - their concern being that not to do so may cause disturbance and damage to unspoilt areas, particularly during the bird nesting season. To this I will add that you'll get round quicker! One last point, please remember

GPS reception can be poor so I can't guarantee the accuracy of my co-ordinates. I have, however, picked reasonably obvious hiding places and given pretty generous hints, so I hope you don't have too much difficulty. The grading is given for doing the whole series in one visit. Any individual cache will be easier than this. Doing the whole series in one push (recommended) should take two to three hours. The common can be wet in places at the best of times, so I'd advise boots. A compass and the Ordnance Survey Explorer 146 (1:25,000) Dorking, Box Hill & Reigate map could also be useful.

There are also a number of puzzle caches on the Common but apart from SECRET SQUIRREL they're all quite hard......

The co-ordinates for this cache are to be found in the container for the previous cache in this series.

The cache container does not contain a pen nor pencil so please take your own writing implement. The log is to be found in its own little screw top container.
Note: You will in any case need paper and pen at some point in the series.
