Geocache Description:

This is a series of caches along the beautiful Langstrath Valley in Borrowdale.

The route is a circular one on good paths along the banks of Stonethwaite Beck and Langstrath Beck. In total there are 20 geocaches which cover a distance of about 6.5 miles. However if you wish, you can do a shorter version by doing No.s 1 to 4 and then crossing over the bridge and doing No.s 15 to 21 which is a distance of about 2½ miles.

There is parking for approximately 6 cars in the gorgeous little hamlet of Stonethwaite, close to the phone box at N54 30.822 W003 08.441. If this is full there are a few places to park on the roadside leading into the Stonethwaite.

You are walking in officially the wettest part of the country, so please be prepared accordingly, and although this circuit is mainly on level ground (there are one or two short uphill deviations), when doing the full round, it is quite a trek, so ensure you go with adequate provisions.

Walk though the village past the Langstrath Inn and bear right signed ‘To the campsite’. You are looking for a camouflaged micro.

--A special thanks goes to the National Trust for their cooperation and permission in laying these caches.--

Can I please ask you NOT to upload photographs of any of the 'different' kind of containers, so that others can enjoy them.

++++++Enjoy the Journey.++++++
