martlakes: Came by to check all the caches.
Agree with earlier loggers that the wall is suffering some damage from careless cachers. So before it gets worse, time to archive this. Great shame as many folk have enjoyed this challenge over the years.
A new cache has been set further up the lane, but at low level.
Sorry to see the Steeple go, but it has to be.

Geocache Description:

The bridleway on the east of Bell Hill is a delightful place, with great views and wild raspberries in season, which Safie likes. It leads down to the ford with its small stone bridge. Along the way is a vertical challenge!

Steeplejacks climb the steeple to make repairs. Inside the bells are hung on a large frame so the vibration from their movement doesn't damage the tower/steeple. Since this is a boogie around Bell Hill, here's a chance to practice your steeplejack skills!

More tree identification needed here! You're looking for an oak with many branches, nicely spaced. It's a bit guarded at the base by some prickly bits, but with a team effort, or just some determination, it can be done.

PLEASE DO NOT TRY AND USE THE WALL, WHICH COULD MOVE AND DAMAGE THE WALL OR YOU!
The GPS was saying 113m when the cache was placed. It's quite a small container but the attachment device should be clearly visible. For those over 70, bring a helpful niece or nephew. Everyone will need a pen and you must sign the log to claim a find.

Please note how and where the cache is placed and return it
in exactly the same manner.
As with any cache, you assume all responsibility for yourself
in deciding to hunt the cache or not.
