How Geocaching Works

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

Geocache Description:

The Shropshire Way is a long distance footpath that was devised by various Shropshire rambling groups in 1979/80. The way began in the North of the county, and links with the Sandstone Trail near Whitchurch, before taking a circular course south of Shrewsbury.

The route is of 136 miles and includes highlights such as the castles of Clun and Stokesay, the famous industrial archaeology site of Ironbridge and the lovely old town of Ludlow. The walking is magnificent throughout and not too strenuous.

The Shropshire Way Series

The Shropshire Way series is a set of caches all set on or very close to the Shropshire Way. Please feel free to add to the series - all we ask is you name them in the same format as the others in the series i.e. 'Wyke - Shropshire Way', use this background image and have this paragraph at the top of the cache listing.

This series was inspired by Cape02, in collaboration with The Pirates of Shropshire, The Bolas Heathens, and The Shropshire Conquistadors.

Little (!) Hill

Many people are familiar with the other side of The Wrekin where the main path goes up, but how many have explored this side of it? We certainly have not and absolutely loved the area. It's a lot quieter, with a narrower, but well defined path up the hill through some lovely woodland.

Rather than put yet another cache on The Wrekin, we opted to put a cache near to Little Hill, The Wrekin's smaller sibling. We suggest you park near to the Trailhead and then follow the signposted Shropshire Way track up into the woods

The Cache

You are looking for a Regular sized ammo box full of decent swaps. It's hidden not far from the path up the hill. After you have found the cache, why not continue to the top of the hill as it offers some fabulous panoramic views over Shropshire between the trees.
