Geocache Description:

Stoughton Stumble: Series Start An easy one to get you going! I recommend you follow the series clockwise: you will pass GC1BA67 Lead me to it & GC1JWTT Out of Place so if not done I would included them in your list. Remember the country code do not remove any plants!

Unfortunately due to the varying terrain, this series is not wheelchair friendly. Push Chairs will need to be the off road variety

Please ensure the cache Lid is put on correctly, and the container is replaced & hidden again.


When most people arrive at the quiet village of Stoughton they cannot resist walking in the outstandingly beautiful Kingley Vale Nature Reserve.

However, this series takes you up and over the hill on the opposite side of the road, where the views and the woodland are just as spectacular but much quieter.

All the caching is along public tracks and field paths, and hopefully, you will, also be able to enjoy the abundant wildlife and fine views of the South Downs, at times across the Solent to the Isle of Wight.

The first half of the route is a bit hilly but one which I find pretty reliable underfoot, even in the really muddy times of the year. However, all of the countryside has its muddy spots so please make sure that you wear appropriate footwear.

The bonus cache, at the end, is The Hare and Hounds, a superb county pub where all will find a good welcome for all of the family, including kids and dog

This is also a great dog walk with just a couple of stiles (currently).

Please remember you will be in the countryside so, please take all your litter home!

Unfortunately due to the varying terrain, this series is not wheelchair friendly. Push Chairs will need to be the off road variety.
