How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
This puzzle cache is the seventh of a series of themed puzzles in the area and has been created after having fun solving some of the Famous Berkshire Residents series. The cache is not at the posted co-ordinates, so it's not necessary to go there, but there is a board regarding the history around the lake...... Solve the puzzle below to find out the location of the cache container; a 35mm pot with a ferocious guardian.
