Geocache Description:


The 'Prestwold Amble' series is placed around a very pleasant 3.4 mile (5.5km) varied environment walk and is one of my favourites with our geo-retriever 'Megin'. Time to walk the full route is around 1.5 hours plus caching time, though the series can easily be split into two shorter loops (see map). The view across open countryside towards Prestwold Hall from the south-west of the series is stunning, particularly on a nice sunny day. The route is on public & permissive footpaths/bridleways, mainly across open aspect landscape but with a couple of sections through woodland. There is a short roadside section to the north-west of the series through Preswold village on a narrow pavement - care should be taken at each end when crossing the sometimes busy road.

The series consists of 28 caches in total including two Mystery Bonus's, three Letterbox's, three simple off-set Multi's, three 'Little Bridges' and a 'Church Micro' (Church Micro #8660...Prestwold). There are quite a few existing caches nearby. Finds should be straight forward but hopefully a few containers/hides will be interesting. Bring a pen and tweezers for the nano containers. There is a mixture of cache types & designs, with a double bonus opportunity at the end for those visiting the complete series.

Make sure information is collected from certain caches in the series, so that final co-ordinates for 'Bonus One' and 'Bonus Two' Mysteries can be located.

The series starts in the village of Burton on the Wolds where there is reasonable on-street parking, but please be considerate to the local residents. There are two other convenient access points into the series with limited off-road parking for two or three vehicles close to the West and East legs of the route. DO NOT attempt to park in Prestwold village as the road is narrow and busy - there are no parking opportunities within this small village.
