How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

Accessible, flat. read notices before parking. Bus and nearby british rail trains

This series is run by FantasticCat (The FTF#1 cache is GC1N994) and is a continuation of the series that Dorsetgal has started in Dorset (GC1K6MX), after hearing about it how it got established in the US on the Podcacher Podcast. Hopefully in time it will become established nationwide!
Guidelines for this series are set out below :
1. FTF'er should place the next cache in the series (in this case, The Curse of the FTF #4) within 1 month... Otherwise the curse could prevent you from ever getting another FTF again!!! Muhahahahahahahaha!
2. You can only be a FTF for this series once. This spreads the FTF love around, and gives others a chance to play along.
3. Cache can be any type of cache (Trad, Puzzle, Multi, etc.)
4. You must set it in Greater London (there are 33 London boroughs making up Greater London; Barnet in the North down to Croydon and Bromley in the South, Hillingdon in the West through to Havering in the East)
By way of clarification, there is NO requirement besides the standard signing of the cache log to prevent you from logging this cache when found. Everyone should log their find, and hopefully the FTF person will play along and place another cache, but it is in no way a requirement for logging your find.
FantasticCat will be happy to answer any questions concerning the guidelines or about the placing of caches to those who have not placed a cache before.

A beautiful English village green. Winchmore Hill Green is the remains of the old village green which once had a circular pond. The Edmonton enclosure map of 1801 shows that there was a well-established village at Winchmore Hill by that time, although the nearest church was All Saints Edmonton until 1828. However there had been a Quaker community here since 1688 . Although Winchmore Hill Station opened in 1871, the area remained quite rural until the late 1920s. Despite building development that took place from the late 1920s, there have been relatively few changes since the 1930s and Winchmore Hill retains its village atmosphere around the Green. Today the Green consists of two open areas of grass one of which is surrounded by low railings - both have some trees and seats.
