Geocache Description:

A loop around Longfield Hill and its surrounds, approximately 5.5 miles in length, with 28 caches plus a clamber too! Each cache will have its own D/T rating but the route as a whole is an undulating mixture of roads and paths through fields and woodland. The fields were muddy when we set it in February.



Having enjoyed walking a couple of the loop trails and setting some of our own one-off caches we decided it was time to lay down a series of our own. There seems to be few caches in the Longfield Hill area so that seemed a good place to start. As we started planning we found that not only was there a lack of caches, there was also a lack of footpaths. However, we think we have created a nice walk for you, with equal variety of scenery and of cache styles and types from nano upwards and a few fun ones too.

Some can be completed as cache and dash and there are no parts where you are more than two or three caches from a road. We suggest it is completed in a clockwise direction as that is the way we walked it and the multi's will work far better that way. Alternative parking can be found along the way, although the one we would recommend would be by #13. If you were to start here, there is a handy pub about halfway around for sustenance (near #2).

Other caches you may like to include that are not too far off the main loop are; GC5JCRH 'Wave to the trains - toot, toot', GC5KTDO 'On the run - nearly home! Once the railway embankment works are finished there is GC208V2 'Longfield Hill View' (Currently suspended as the footpath has been moved further into the field and the GZ is now behind fencing.

From the start of #20 continue along tracks until you get to the GZ. You are looking for a double potted container about 6-7m up the tree. It was a fairly straight forward free climb when I set it. Hopefully it'll be as easy in the summer.

As with all caches please take care.
