The Oxford Canal Walk follows the picturesque Oxford Canal as it meanders slowly through 77 miles of classic scenery, much of which has barely changed in centuries. Passing through the quiet rural landscape of the south Midlands. It passes beside 43 locks, numerous wooden lift bridges, cast iron bridges and through one tunnel. There are few hills to speak of - the canal summit is only 400 feet above the start at Oxford. At one time it was the main transport route from the midlands to the south of England and it is now one of the most beautiful and popular cruising canals.
We stumbled upon this tiny but peaceful park whilst out on a maintenance visit nearby and felt that it deserved its own cache. A short diversion off of the canal will soon have you at the location which can be accessed from either direction.
As my employer has decided that it would be a good idea to move the whole organisation to Bristol, the Phillimore's (Mad H@ter and Muddy Legs) will be moving on to pastures new and some fresh caches. Unfortunately this will mean that it will become difficult for us to maintain our Oxfordshire caches, so we will therefore be gradually archiving the majority of them. We shall start our program of collecting the caches and archiving them in the new year, but as we have one or two caches out there this will not be a five minute program! If you would particularly like to find this cache before it is archived please get in touch and we will try and hold off archiving it.
