A short walk near the River Mole.
The River Mole rises near Crawley in Sussex and flows 80km northwards to join the River Thames, near Hampton Court. Legend has it that it is called the Mole because it disappears underground into the chalk near Dorking during dry weather.
The paths to the cache can be muddy after heavy rain, so come prepared.
Parking is available at the waypoint below (although there is some limited parking available at the other end of the footpath if you want a shorter walk). If you do approach from the recommended parking, then to the left of the path you will see three ancient oak trees with huge trunks. These are remnants of a medieval system, called pollarding, which was used until recent times. The oak trees had the dual purpose of providing shelter for domestic animals, while providing wood from the branches of the pollards. These trees may be more than 300 years old.
