Geocache Description:

Hidden in an area of deep tree-cover high on the North Downs, this cache is named for the hideous din that rises from the M25 London orbital motorway 350 feet below.

The North Downs path runs through the woods that cover the top of the Downs here. The noise from the motorway is much less intrusive in the nearby Marden Park Wood, which has a number of paths and bridleways running through it. Nearer the cache there are a number of places offering views out over the Surrey countryside.

In 2003 much of the new-growth bush on this face of the North Downs was cleared to give the rare open-downland species more space to flourish. The open-downland is a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Access is not restricted, but please take care if you choose to go walking there. (You don't need to do so in order to find the cache.)

There's a car park at N51 16.175, W000 01.960, and a point with a fine view at N51 16.145, W000 01.874 (if you can cope with all the steps).

The cache is a small (not quite big enough for a CD) white plastic box containing a selection of small items including a log book and pencil.
