Geocache Description:

Mews is a primarily British term formerly describing a row of stables, usually with carriage houses below and living quarters above, built around a paved yard or court, or along a street, behind large city houses during the 17th and 18th centuries.

Mews lost their equestrian function in the early 20th century when motor cars were introduced. At the same time, after World War I and especially after World War II, the number of people who could afford to live in the type of houses which had a mews attached fell sharply. Some mews were demolished or put to commercial use, but the majority were converted into homes. These "mews houses", nearly always located in the wealthiest districts, are themselves now fashionable residences. Some of the mews in the local area hold a market value between £1.5 million and £2 million per residence.

The cache is somewhere between Craven Road to the North, and the two low concrete posts where the mews opens up, so there's no need to venture into the mews itself. It blends in well with it's surroundings and you probably haven't seen one like this before. It has nothing to do with a black sensor box and doesn't require any tools to retrieve this. GPS signal may be poor due to surrounding buildings.

Please bring a pen and only sign one line of the log, there's no need to put the date.

Please also replace the cache in the exact same position and height so future cachers can enjoy the hide, and keep the website logs clue free

If you can't find the cache and would like some help, log a DNF and send me a message.

Well done to Corinian (FKA Superdale) on FTF!!
