Geocache Description:

Charlie’s Fourth Loop, is a figure of 8 loop. It is based in the lovely woods, paths, bridleways and back lanes above Aspley Heath and about 5 1/2 miles long.

The first half is the driest and flattest part. The 2nd is more hilly with some back lanes to walk. It also links onto Charlie’s First Loop.

Caches 14-16 and 17-19 are left to your route choice

Tweezers will be needed.

Good parking at the start.  N51° 59.995  W0° 39.257

The loop is generally all sandy paths, well protected from winds in the winter by all the trees

It can easily be split into two separate routes

It will be a pleasant walk overall. Initially an out and back loop goes to the bike jump area.

While the second half goes on a few less well known paths and back lanes/paths based around Church Lane. (parts may be damp but still good)

There may be poor GPS coverage, but hopefully the good hints will help.
