chramm_and_fam: Sadly the container has gone this time, along with the tbs!
It seems the fence next to it has been opened up and is now a footpath taking people right next to the cache where before it was behind a tree off the path! Opening up Big Wood for new caches...

Geocache Description:

This is a night cache, and can only be  attempted at night, or at least dusk. The  cache is not at he above co-ordinates, this is  where the trail starts.

It is no more dangerous than most places  but it is probably not advisable to go into  the  wood on your own in the dark is it? 

You will be following a trail of green reflector  strips through the woods, so you will need a  torch to identify the route. (On a recent trip I noticed an unrelated trail of white reflectors, don't get them confused. The green ones are fewer and further between!!) I used a pretty normal torch, so special equipment is not  necessary. In fact a mediocre torch is better than a very bright one!  The route does go  off the marked paths into the woodland so  you should be careful and watch out for  steep banks and  muddy sections!! (Wellies  maybe?)

When you get to GZ shine your torch around  the clearing to find two green reflector  strips.  I have tried to attach the reflectors  to branches just above head height so that  people cannot easily remove them.

Stand by the reflectors and look for the next  one by shining your torch into the trees  around, and then walk to the next one . If  there is a big change of direction then there  are two strips, otherwise it generally  continues ahead. You may need to take a step or two to the side to see the next one.
There are a couple of reflectors missing. When you get to a  reflector where there is  a steep slope to your right, go down the slope. Facing down the slope, turn left at the bottom and you should find the next reflector.

When you get to the cache site it is an obvious dead end with two horizontal strips.  It is hidden in the base of the adjacent tree, well stickoflaged! It is a temporary container so please try not to get things stuck inside and replace carefully.  There are some appropriate treats for each person, please only take one each.

Retrace your steps back to GZ, and there is a single reflector to help identify the path back to the carpark.
