Red 12 - Footpath to the Cows
The Milton Keynes Boundary Walk is approximately 65 miles long and follows the border of the MK Unitary Authority; it is waymarked with the Oakleaf symbol.
In 2012 a group a local geocachers divided the walk into sections and set a series of approximately 300 caches along the boundary. More information about the walk and caches can be found at the website Caching the Boundary.
The red section of the walk is approximately 6.5 miles long and starts at the A5 South of Aspley Heath, via Great Brickhill and ends in Newton Longville. The walk is mostly across farm land and in the middle part follows the Grand Union Canal.
There are 33 caches in this section - 24 traditionals, 6 letterboxes, 1 multi, 1 puzzle and 1 bonus. Each non-bonus cache contains a number to help you find the red bonus cache which is hidden towards the middle of the red section of the walk.
This is the 12th of the red section caches and is a small cliplock box.
My GPS was a bit jumpy when I set the cache so it would be helpful if you tell me in your log if I'm way off with the co-ords! Also despite seeing the cows on our previous 5 visits, the final time they had gone (maybe to see their concrete cousins in MK who've had a lovely paint job for Halloween?). Evidence of their time in the field is easy to come by though, so watch your feet!
