You will need to be extra vigilant when retrieving the cache, as you will be in full view of all muggles.
It would not be wise to search during a busy period, or you are sure to be an article of curiosity.
The cache is a mid sized plastic container with a few goodies inside.
Be sure to wander up the path into the gardens of the Church, they are splendid.
The cache is located near to the Chateau in Fougeres, but is just as close to the Eglise de St Leonard.
The beautiful gardens are much walked over and around, and so the cache is hidden where no person will see on a normal level..hence the terrain rating of 3.
And Fougeres itself:
For centuries an important frontier fortress, Fougères dominates the hilltop overlooking the Breton-Norman border. The town’s history inspired many prominent authors including Victor Hugo, Châteaubriand, Balzac and Flaubert. The elegant main street, Rue Nationale, is pedestrianised and has a tiny museum of the town's history.
The medieval quarter, once the home of tanners and dyers, still has some ancient wooden houses. The château is one of the best preserved in France and is open from June to September. The nearby forest of Fougères is good for walkers and has marked trails along the river bank or by St François lake.
