Bash&Dodge: Out on a lovely day to do some cache checking and maintaining (or in some cases removing geo litter to archive). We saw loads of little babies today...grebes, mallards and moorhens...all cute and fluffy.

Sadly another fun cache which has been broken one too many times. We have replaced half a dozen times but at cost, so time to say farewell
Thanks to those who have enjoyed it, especially those 48 who have given a favourite to something out of the ordinary

How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

This is one of a series of some one hundred and forty caches set along The Aylesbury Ring, a circular footpath that follows a thirty mile route round Aylesbury.

Under development since the early 1980s, more details can be found here. A Bucks CC leaflet with further information and points of interest along the route can be downloaded from here.

For the purpose of these caches, The Ring is divided into seven sections (each named after a species of duck), and each section is designed to be done in a clockwise direction; if you choose to do otherwise, you will be causing yourself much unnecessary back-tracking.

Most of the caches are stand-alone, but within each of the seven sections is a bonus cache for which you will have to collect information from the other caches within that section. This information is in the format A=1. The bonus information is not interchangeable between sections.

In addition there is a Golden Egg Bonus cache. To find this, you will also have to collect information from all sections, although not all caches (and none in the bonus caches). This information is in the format 1=LZ. Refer to the Golden Egg Bonus cache page for what to do once you have all this information.

There is a mixture of cache types and sizes, and a variety of different hides. Some are straightforward, others a little more tricky, but not one is a 35mm film canister under a rock at the bottom of a post - although ivy may feature on occasions!

Once you have found the majority of the series and logged them online, you will qualify to go for the AYLESBURY DUCK GOLDEN EGG BONUS, set somewhere within The Ring.

Now, onto this cache:

Welcome to the Mandarin (Duck) section of the Aylesbury Ring series, running from a point along the Aylesbury Arm of the Grand Union canal to Wendover with a total of 24 caches.

This is the Eleventh cache of this section, a traditional, on the Aylesbury Ring close to Aston Clinton. You may need tweezers to extract the log book. To claim this cache you must sign the log book please...
