Weatheroak Wander: Alcott Approach
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
A simple traditional cache on a circular walk around Weatheroak and Alcott Farm.
The Weatheroak Wander links 6 existing caches with 3 new ones to form a circular walk of 4 miles.
The route includes one steep hill and several stiles. There is also a busy road to cross at Alcott Approach, so take extra care here if accompanied by geokids.
Boots are recommended as some parts of this trail are muddy. En route you'll get some great views over the Worcestershire country side, albethem interrupted by the M42.
There are 9 caches to find in all. In no particular order, they are:
GCYT01 : Let sleeping policemen lie... (part 1)
GC1JY5F: M42 Motorway Madness - Another boring nano.....
GC1R2GR: M42 Motorway Madness - Running out of Bridges?
GC136H4: Stagecoach Stash
GC1T0GW: Studio 16 - Suite XVI
GC1ZB7Y: The Lazy Cacher's Guide to Northfield Street Names
GC27HHN: Weatheroak Wander: Alcott Approach
GC27HGW: Weatheroak Wander: Gate
GC27HHY: Weatheroak Wander: Traffic Hum
Suggested parking is at the Coach and Horses Inn at Weatheroak and, if you haven't done Stagecoach Stash, start with that cache and pick up others as you pass them.
This cache is at the start of the path that leads to Alcott Farm. You can branch off here to grab "M42 Motorway Madness - Running out of Bridges?". (However, I wouldn't recommend doing this cache as a drive-by in conjunction with "Running out of Bridges". The circular walk through the countryside with views over the hills is a much nicer experience.)
You are looking for a black cylinder, about twice the size of a 35mm film canister.
Va gur vil.
