shirty demon: Placement permission for this cache was obtained from the Stansted Park Estate.

A member of the Estate staff has now begun a campaign to try and prevent people from walking in the woods, and is even attempting to challenge and evict people who are walking along Public Footpaths!

The reviewer for this area has been contacted and asked to ensure that all caches are removed from Estate land.

In order to avoid any conflict, I have chosen to archive the cache.
My thanks to all of you who have enjoyed finding it during the last 3 years.

Geocache Description:

The cache is not to be found at the above co-ordinates, but can be found within 1 mile of them.

This cache is the 3rd in a series of caches, each of which will have some sort of connection with the "Discworld" novels of Terry Pratchett.

The Duchy of Quirm lies along the coast of the Rim Ocean, about twenty leagues turnwise from Ankh-Morpork. Its current ruler is Lord Rodley, His Grace, the Duke of Quirm.. Quirm is famous for its explorers and inventors, the da Quirms, including Ponce da Quirm and Leonard da Quirm, infamous for Norris, the Eyeball-Eating Maniac of Quirm and B.S. Johnson's typically unfortunate Collapsed Tower of Quirm. It is known as the place with a floral clock, and no excitement. It is also known in Ankh-Morpork that Quirm has better food, wine, weather, air and water and the burghers of Ankh hope to retire there, but really! the place is full of foreigners! While it is regarded as a sleepy, slightly boring place, Quirm supplies Ankh-Morpork with a great many artists, artisans, chefs, and cultural movers and shakers; clearly something must be going on there.

The true location of the cache is given in the puzzle below
