Geocache Description:

The cache is in a tree adjacent to the signed footpath that passes near the lake.
It is about 6-7m above ground level and can be seen (attached with boot laces!) from the downed tree.
It has a reflective base to aid night cachers
The tree has a green bangle 3m up.

Check out the sculpture in the lake directly South of the given coordinates.



This striking new sculpture of a mermaid is set on a rock structure in the North Lake. The Mermaid - which is over 9 metres high with a 14 metre wide tail - marks the start of The Bridge Sculpture Trail and promises to become an icon for the local area.
The Sculpture Trail is the work of local artist William Jordan. The Trail, which will eventually comprise 12 pieces of art (12 caches?), is being made primarily from re-cycled materials. The Mermaid itself is made from a combination of different metals, around 80% of which are recycled. The rock structure on which she sits has been formed using recycled concrete and natural stone and it has been planted to provide a habitat for water voles.
According to William Jordan, The Mermaid reflects the convergence of earth and water in the surrounding area.
Here's a youtube video of the creation of the Mermaid:
