GizmoKyla: Hi

One of our roles as a reviewer is to monitor our region for caches that have been disabled for a long time, have had a reasonable number of DNFs or appear to require some maintenance. This is done through running a query on a database of all the caches in our region that looks for such things or by cachers submitting Needs Archiving logs as it appears maintenance may not be being carried out by the CO.

It would appear that this cache may benefit from some attention by the CO. May we ask that the owner checks the cache and sort out any problems with it or gives an indication of when it may be up and running again for people to find. If this cannot be done or if the CO no longer wishes to maintain the cache then the listing should be archived.

Of course if the CO has visited the cache recently then please post an Owner Maintenance log indicating that they have done so, enable the listing, and all should be fine.

In the future, if a listing is going to be disabled for a long time then posting periodic notes to the page (once per month or so) keeps people up to date with what is happening.

This isn't a requirement to fix the cache immediately but if it's unlikely to be done within 30 days could the CO post a note to the cache page giving an indication of when the maintenance will be done, or an indication of why it cannot be carried out.

By all means send a mail to us through our profile, quoting the cache name and GC code, but please also post a note to the cache page. Emails to us may be missed or go astray and it would be a shame to archive the listing due to missing correspondence.

The Geocache Maintenance guideline explains a CO's responsibility towards checking and maintaining the cache when problems are reported.

Sadly if there is no response to this log after 30 days we may have to archive the cache.

Please note that the guidelines say that if a cache is archived by a reviewer or Geocaching HQ staff for lack of maintenance then it will not be unarchived - Unarchiving a Geocache

Geocache Description:

Here is my 4th church micro, I have a ? CM cache Church Micro 4050...Wells Cathedral, for that note how many figurative carvings are crafted into the top North elevation of the tower and keep that for future reference.

Your looking for a black taped twist top container.

Where the cache lays is beautiful country Back Lane.
The steps here take you into the church yard.

For those not in the know The Church Mirco Series is intended to be as big a cache size as you can muster, Steve (sadexploration) explains.
Click here page 4.
The series is called ‘Church Micro’ I encourage cachers to hide as large a cache as it's possible to. It’s just that Church 2.5 Lt clip box’ didn’t quite roll off the tongue as well.

So onto the church description
.

The Church of St Mary in Litton, Somerset, England, dates from the 13th century. It is a Grade I listed building.

There is some evidence for the existence of a Saxon church on the site before the Norman Conquest. The village was listed in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Litune, meaning 'The small enclosure' from the Old English lyt and tun. It was the property of Gisa, Bishop of Wells, and a Norman building was later incorporated into the present building.

The north isle was added around 1850 to accommodate the influx of people involved in the construction of the Litton Reservoirs. It contains the 14th century font. The pulpit is Jacobean and the benches are from the 15th century.

It has a Perpendicular three-stage tower with battlements, pinnacles and a bell chamber, containing six bells which were repaired and rehung around 1910.

Several of the memorials and crosses in the churchyard are also listed buildings. There is also a damaged Saxon font.
