Geocache Description:

Town centre cache - non-micro!

0.5l Klik box. I've attached a cable-tie loop for ease of extraction and replacement.

This is right in the town centre, in one of the oldest streets in Wetherby. The street was originally a butchers market; one butchers shop remains.

This really is Muggle Central. You will have to either use all your stealth abilities or come at an unusual time to avoid this being muggled, particularly as it is a normal cache (not a micro) and it takes a bit of twisting to get!

The muggle potential is why it has a difficulty of 2.5; without the muggles, I think this would be relatively easy to find and get.

Thursdays (market day) and the second Sunday morning in the month (farmers market) would make this location particularly muggley.

I scouted out this area in the middle of the night, but managed to place the cache in the middle of a sunny afternoon, so it can be done.

Whilst you can get right up to this cache in a wheelchair, you have to have considerable flexibility to retrieve or place it if you're a wheelchair user, or have an assistant. (I am a wheelchair user.)

Initial contents:

:- logbook, pencil, geocaching sheet
:- Bouncing Putty
:- Finger ring
:- Bouncy Ball
:- Mini Yoyo
:- Mini Slinky
:- Mini Slide Puzzle

When returning this cache, please be careful to hide it properly, especially try to make it not conspicous from a distance - what looks like well hidden up close actually isn't always from up the street.
