Geocache Description:

This cache is inspired by our love of Salcey Forest and the enjoyment we have had in completing the Salcey Trail of caches.  We wanted to join in the fun and place some caches of our own. 

Salcey Forest is a former medieval hunting forest in the south of the county of Northamptonshire in England.  It lies to the east of the village of Hartwell, between Northampton and Newport Pagnell. It is managed by the Forestry Commission and is still commercially exploited for timber products.

There are public footpaths through the forest and a range of wildlife can be observed. The forest is a remnant of the medieval royal hunting forest. Reminders of the past can still be found, with many miles of ancient woodbanks, building remains and ancient trees. The 'druids' or veteran oaks in Salcey are rare and amazing wildlife habitats, and some of the old oaks are believed to be over 500 years old.

The forest has a café in one of the main parking areas - which is pay and display, next to the children's play area - most of the remaining parking areas in the forest are free.

Time to hand over to the kids!

As the name suggests, this is Mason's Mission to find a great hiding place for his first ever cache.

It is a small, screw-top plastic container, covered in black tape.  He has also put some goodies in it, including a trackable GeoCoin and a medal for the FTF.  It includes a log book and pencil.

This cache has been placed with the kind permission of the Forestry Commission.
