Geocache Description:

A possible cache 'n' dash in near Wimpole/Arrington.

  The memorial

Poppies on Parade is a series of caches devised by Mr.Nibbler, who has kindly given permission to use the idea.

Wimpole and Arrington are a couple of small villages that border the Wimpole Hall estate, just south west of Cambridge. Like many villages, towns and cities in the UK they sent their sons to serve at sea, on land and in the air. Not all of them came back, and like many they have a memorial to those that have fallen and not returned. This memorial was once on the busy A603 before this section of road was sidelined when the Arrington roundabout was built several years ago.

The Cache

Please replace carefully in exactly the same position so the container is out of sight as you are in full view of passers by and traffic on the road. The cache is very small and contains only a tiny log so you need to take your own pen or pencil. Please note that the cache is NOT on, or immediately adjacent to the memorial or under the wreaths etc. so don't waste your time poking around it please.

This is quiet little backwater and parking is available adjacent to the memorial. Do not park on the A1198 as this is a very busy road and crossing is not recommended. The area is paved and wheelchair/stroller accessible.

In the corner of a foreign field, that is forever England
