Geocache Description:

3rd of 7 (including BONUS)

This cache series will take you along the Cwm Lickey Circular walk taking in the industry of The 'Race' area and the community that grew up around it. The Race probably got its name from the mining of iron ore, one of the many industries that developed in this area. The walk will take you past the Old resevoirs; along disused tram roads; and will give you views of Llandegfedd resevoir and the Momnouthshire hills (on a clear day). All caches may be completed as part of the series or independantly.

For the bonus you will need to collect a clue from each of the log books within the caches to be able to work out the bonus cache co-ordinates. Cache details: Small round clip lock box in a camo bag contains log book, pencil and sharpener plus usual small swaps. *If following the circular walk: From Dave Phillips-Jackson 8 (Cwm Lickey #2) Continue bout 400m until the path forms a 'crossroads'; turn right and proceed downhill to the old penyrheol Resevoir. Continue on the track keeping the railing to your right. The circular walk includes stiles, and is on well defined footpaths that are either grassy or stoney (where you follow the old tram tracks) which can be uneven in places.

NOTE: There is no need to scramble in and out of bushes, the cache is placed in the nearest bush to the path at the given co-ordinates. See spoiler for more detailed information/hints
