How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

Number 477 in a series of caches where a red telephone box is in close proximity to a post box.
The only rules are that they have to be able to be photographed together, be not more than 100’ apart and the phone boxes have to be red.

This is a circular route about 3.5 miles long, that follows paths to Stony Littleton Long Barrow - those of you who have done ‘Tomb Raider “Returns” will know the route! 

The route follows public footpaths, with one section being alongside Wellow Brook.  In winter months the paths can be a little muddy (especially between number 8,9 and then back to the road) and the brook can be quite deep and fast flowing in places.  Whilst we placed the route with our child, we recommend you keep an eye on any geo-children.   If you want to avoid the muddiest section you can double back from cache 8 and follow the cycle path back up to Wellow for a different route.

Tweezers may be useful to extract the logs in a few caches.

As well as the Wellow Wander you can also visit:

GC20DD6, Memories are made of this, located between Wellow Wander 7 and 8

GC43JG0, Norton Lane 5 – The Ford between Wellow Wander 9 and 10

GC5PPJQ – Church Micro 7517…Wellow a short walk to the East of the Fox and Badger  


There is good sized car park in Wellow, waypoint 1.


After Wellow Wander 1 turn left under the bridge and follow the path down to the brook.  NOTE: This footpath is closed Monday – Thursdays until the 31st March 2016 for sheep grazing.  An alternative route is to go Wellow Wander number 10 then turn right after the pub to GC43JG0, Norton Lane 5 – The Ford. From here you can pick up the path that goes up alongside the house (waypoint 4) to follow Wellow Brook to Wellow Wander number 2. 


Please note: there is no need to go on the grass or enter the phonebox to find this cache!

The Fine Pair series was originally started by wizardsmum but is now managed by mattd2k.

If anybody would like to place 'A Fine Pair' of their own please do. I would just ask that you first visit to request a number to avoid any duplication.

mattd2k also keeps a public Bookmark List of this series. Once your cache is published please contact him via at to have yours added.
