Geocache Description:

Eldest son suggested Seven Skyscrapers. Being puzzled by this we asked him to clarify.

Those of you who have read Aldous Huxley's book 'Brave New World' will recognise the following passage from the book -
"On the north the view was bounded by the long chalk ridge of the Hog's Back, from behind whose eastern extremity rose the towers of the seven skyscrapers which constituted Guildford".
Perhaps you can use your imagination to envisage where these seven structures would be located.

This cache is slightly more difficult to get hold of than our first one and hence the D/T value. When you eventually do find the cache and can retrieve it, please replace as best you can. Can I please remind those who do attempt this cache to sign the log before logging a find. There have been a few who feel that just seeing the cache is sufficient for a find - the high rating reflects the difficulty and it would not be fair to those that have managed to sign the log. I will ask those that do not sign the log to remove their find log. We don't like to do this but feel we must. Many thanks.

The cache lies between two other caches along the trail and lies just off the main path although there seems to be several paths leading through the undergrowth. It sits close to the relatively newly erected fence that was supposed to keep stock in the fields but problems meant that this was a short lived adventure. Unfortunately the cattle were disturbed by our four legged domestic pets and have not been seen again. Enjoy the cache hunt and most of all enjoy the walk and the views.

Congratulations to Turnkey84 for First To Find
