Geocache Description:

Clarendon Palace is the fourth in a series of six caches around the Pitton Circular Walk that has been created by the South Wilts Paths Group with assistance from Wiltshire Council. Each of the six caches can be visited in their own right, or by following the waymarked trail. This cache is also on the Clarendon Way long distance footpath between Winchester and Salisbury



Clarendon Palace

Clarendon Palace is a medieval ruin. It was an important royal residence and administrative centre during the Middle Ages, being the location of the Assize of Clarendon which developed the Constitutions of Clarendon. The site is now administered by English Heritage, and is free to visit.
If you are walking the Pitton Circular Walk:- From Stairway to Heaven, continue along the track, turning right and then going anti-clockwise around a large field. The track way broadens and finally you will see the ruins of the Palace in a field on your right. Perhaps you have just walked past the cache? It is just off the track on your left.
If you are walking the Clarendon Way from the east, then the cache will be on your left, but if you are coming from the west it is obviously on your right, after passing the Palace.
After signing the log, please secure the container, ensuring it is water-tight and hide as found; safe for the next visitor. Before continuing to Cut End GC64393, it will be well worth visiting the ruins of the Palace.
To enter the site, head west and turn right soon after the cache. Follow the fence on your left to the entrance, a tall kissing gate. There are many descriptive boards around the ruins which explain the importance of this site, and its place in English History. But beware the Normans left their tall sheep behind, and they act as Guardians. It is therefore advisable to keep geo-hounds by your side.
