Geocache Description:

A quick cache not far off the path, down the slope to the left about 100m from the entrance to Clyne valley where Aneurin Way and Rhyd-y-Defaid Drive meet. The cache could be a quick cache and dash from the car or if you fancy a longer walk there are a couple more caches around clyne valley, It is generally not too muddy at this part of clyne, but care should be taken down the hill to the cache after or during times of wet weather.

!"!"!"!"!"!"!"!" GPS signal is poor but don't worry just look around one of the widest trees, and the location of his lair should be spotted. The cache is a micro and is too small to hold anything but a log. It is hidden inside a large trees hollow, behind a large piece of bark and a couple of stones please don't move the stones just simply reach inside, feel around and replace cache and bark as found. Thanks. Caches nearby:

The Clyne Valley is an area of over 700acres of land running from the sea at Blackpill, Swansea, in-land to Gowerton. It is an area of once splendid woodland with enormous beech, ash and oak trees mainly on the Mumbles side of the Clyne River, and, on the Swansea side, woods and mainly scrub land that has naturally regenerated a reclaimed refuse tip. The Valley forms an important link in the ecological corridor that runs from the Brecon Beacons and Black Mountain across Commons and on into the Gower AONB. The AONB forms part of the Valley's boundary along Clyne Common. Now dormant - apart from the rich habitat that has formed from neglect- the Valley at one time was part of the Vivian Estate and went on to become a highly active industrial area; with a long history of coal mining, mineral workings, brick making, charcoal burning, railways and canals. please don't give the game away in logs or photos, also bring your own pen. Thanks and enjoy! he wont bite hopefully! haha!"!"!"!"!"!"
