Geocache Description:

The cache can be found a few metres from one of the paths through Homewood Park, on the border of the village of Ottershaw, Surrey. The terrain is generally very easy, but it can be a bit steep if you approach from the south.

The location for this cache is a relatively newly created public space, known as Homewood Park. In the centre of the park is a large mansion, which in the past has been a family home and part of a now disbanded mental institution. It is now used as a corporate headquarters. The surrounding park is home to various businesses, including an electronic games company.

There is a car park nearby, just off Stonehill Road. Although they have just introduced a car park charge it is FREE for the first three hours, which is plenty of time. Do get a free ticket from the machine first, though!

This cache, a tupperware box, can be found at ground level. It contains various pens and a logbook in which you may leave any messages. There are post-cards, a Crackerjack book buddie, a stuffed fish toy, a pack of flash cards, a toy car, a very small backgammon set, a key ring, a paper dinosaur model, a Thorpe Park souvenir, a small pack of playing cards, a Piglet photo frame, a Lego Bionicle mask, a pack of wax crayons, a yo-yo and a puzzle where you have to get the little balls into the holes!

If you visit on a Sunday afternoon and like small steam trains, why not visit the nearby Great Cockrow Railway. Turn right out of the car park, then right at the T-junction and then the next left turn. The railway is a few hundred yards along on the right and has its own car park. Only open on Sunday afternoons April-October.
