Siddington - Old Pub Run
How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
This cache is hidden along a public right of way that joins the village of Siddington to the town of Cirencester. It is possible to reach this cache from at least four directions, via public right of ways, or public foot paths.
The short stretch that leads south, from the suggested parking place in Cirencester industrial estate, follows the path of a disused canal. If you approach from the east you will cross over the path of a disused railway. In the winter the approach from the north can get a bit muddy, but the cache can still be accessed via another more solid path from the industrial estate (if you can find it), or via a tarmac path from the south. If coming from the south you will need to park in Siddington.
The path was used by me many years ago, to travel between a friends house in Siddington and the pubs in Cirencester. The route, although without a flashlight at night could be pretty scary, was a much shorter distance to walk, and safer too, than walking on the roads. The area is now very much more built up compared to back then, but this path still exists. It seems to be used very little now, and can sometimes get a little overgrown, but is always passable.
