Geocache Description:


A series of caches along the Broughton Brook.


This stretch of the brook is along the route of the, proposed, new Milton Keynes to Bedford canal. Stretching from the Grand Union canal in Milton Keynes, the canal will run across Willen Lake and meet up with Broughton Brook in Atterbury. It will run along to Jn 13 of the M1, where an existing cattle creep will take the canal under the motorway. The plan calls for the building a series of locks to negotiate Brogborough Hill. The route will eventually meet up with the river Great Ouse near Kempston. Once completed, you will be able to navigate from the North Sea to the Severn!

Good luck to them, I say


On to the cache. You are looking for a 35mm film canister, camouflaged to blend in. You will have to BYOP. As always when caching with little ones and pet, take care, there is open water nearby.


Please note... the bridge is currently closed to through traffic. Please don't park on the roundabout, that would be both foolish and dangerous. There is plenty of parking close by.


Update - 29-06-2009. This cache has been selected by Garmin and Groundspeak, for a chance to win a new GPS. God alone knows why. If they'd have asked me I would have given them one with a better view/walk. Anyhow, if you're intersted here's the linky Garmin photo competition
