Geocache Description:

This is number 11 of a series ring that will take you on a round trip (figure of 8 to be precise) of a little over 5 miles and will contain 20 caches. Nearby is a welcome stop for a nice cuppa. This one concludes the ring for us. 

The Hogs Back Reservoir lies just off the main track, once the main road from Guildford, that leads to the first cache in this series. The four transmission masts mark the location of the reservoir.

Apparently there are a number of Hogs Back Reservoirs including one in Australia and one in the States. However I'm sure none of them were Dr Who locations for filming the TV series in the early days. 

The series is now complete and we hope that all will find it a pleasure to do whenever they get a chance to complete it. These caches have been around for some time now and we have had mainly good logs but there have been some really bad ones as well. Please note that not all the caches will be easy to find and I would urge you to look at their rating to determine which are the difficult ones. Please feel free to skip the high rating caches if they are not to your liking, remember they are not meant to be found easily. Enjoy the hunt and the walk, including that steep hill at the end. Hopefully we gave everyone a chance to get FTFs and fun in the process. And of course we hope you all enjoyed the views during your walk round the course. This one is a nice quick cache.

Many Congratulations to Bike Pirate (at last - after 9 STFs ..LOL) and Spooney15 for their joint FTF on this, the last cache to be published for this series.
