Geocache Description:

This cache is in a beautiful location very close to the Royal Crescent, Bath. It is suitable for children of all ages. It has a tiny log, please write your name only.

The City of Bath is a wonderful location, loaded with history, beautiful architecture and quaint little shops. If you have time to visit the city before or after visiting the cache, it is very well worthwhile.

Bath was built by the Romans around its hot spring waters around 2,000 years ago. The Victorians re-discovered the Roman Baths and they have since been restored to a magnificent condition.

The Saxons built a huge Abbey in the 800s which was the site for the Coronation of the first King of all England, Edgar, in 973. The Abbey was re-built in the 1400s and still shows the scars of the English civil war in the 1640s.

Bath became popular again in the 1700s due to its "restorative waters", resulting in a massive building programme. All buildings were constructed in a similar style, in a similar stone, resulting in its beautiful architecture. The Royal Crescent, Pump Rooms, Theatre Royal and Assembley Rooms are particularly recommended.

View from the cache

For details of the Royal Crescent and more information on the City of Bath visit this web site. The cache is located at the foot of the Royal Crescent, easily accesible without a car although you could park very close.

Don't go in the bushes. The clue is helpful without giving it away. Please take your own pen/pencil as there isn't one in the cache.

An Ordnance Survey map for the location is available at this web site.

When you replace the cache, please ensure it is not visible to the casual observer (especially from behind the location).

There is an excellent, huge, childrens' playground just round the corner at N51°23.138' W02°22.565' - and its free! Our kids have tried it and loved it.
