Rupert and Friends – Algy Pug 2
This is the third in a series of caches named afer the famous Rupert Bear characters. Algy Pug was originally a multi cache, but due to the constant disappearance of the first stage micro it has been reborn as a conventional cache. All of the Rupert and Friends series of caches can be found in Allesley Park, Coventry.
History of the park
The park was originally a deer park in the 13 century when it was first enclosed around the remains of a Norman 'Motte and Bailey' castle. The park which formed the grounds of Allesley Hall (now a residential home) enjoys a wealth of mature trees and shrubs and contains a walled garden, which is maintained as a Georgian kitchen garden by a local voluntary group. The walled garden is currently being restored to the days when it supplied fruit and vegetables for the hall's owners and servants. Walled garden volunteers organise educational events and activities in the garden to celebrate its history.
There is an active Friends Group.
The cache is in a small lock lid container which is disguised in a camo bag,
