Geocache Description: do a Geocache?

The meaning behind nursery rhymes is often shrouded in mystery and speculation, but we don't suppose Geocaching came into the equation!

This rhyme seems to be more about French royalty losing their heads by execution at the end of the 18th century (although Mr micbinks has been known to recite a rather different version in his youth!).

Anyway, we digress. This cache point affords a commanding view up to the Jack and Jill windmills on the South Downs, weather permitting.

So as you (hopefully) locate the micro here, you may well contemplate all those other caches up there on the Downs.

This area is just inside the South Downs National Park. Originally proposed in the 1940s, the South Downs is the country's ninth national park and will consequently enjoy a much higher level of protection.

You'll need to approach this one on foot along nearby footpaths with stiles on route. Expect muddy conditions around styles on the approach particularly in winter after significant rainfall.

NOTE: when retrieving please leave the container in place and just remove the lid and log, being careful not to drop either! And please ensure the log bag seal and container lid is firmly clipped in place to restrict water ingress.

A pen is a cacher's fundamental tool so please bring a writing implement. In view of previous 'didn't have a pen' logs, please don't trouble to log it online if you haven't logged it in the field, see the geocaching guidelines. Such logs will be deleted without notice.
