Geocache Description:

A camo micro-cache near to the Water Works and adjacent to Desborough Island Moorings.

The Thames Moorings series are a variation on the Thames Path series. Most of the caches will be close to the Thames Path and most likely all of them will be accessible to pedestrians. What differentiates them from others in the Thames Path series is that they are placed near public moorings for the floating equivalent of a "cache and dash", a sort of boating Motorway Mayhem.

You may be able to do this as a "cache and dash" by car too - you can usually park for a short time very near the cache. Otherwise there is a car park halfway along the road north of the Desborough Cut. Or you can combine this cache with the two others on the island.

You need to bring your own pencil/ball point for this cache.

The closest I can get for the Handicache rating is H11111, but this may be a little misleading as the last 2 or 3 feet might possibly be tricky in a wheelchair.
