This cache is part of my HPG (Hathersage Park and Grab) series, a series of caches hidden at places around the interesting village of Hathersage, where Little John is said to be buried. All the caches can be done as Park and Grabs, or are no more than 2 minutes away from the road. Please replace all caches as found and be respectful when parking and do not block access to any of the residents properties/land.
There are some interesting old works down here and a large chimney, whichis often missed when you pass through the centre of Hathersage. There also used to be a mill down here, part of it has been converted into a house called 'The music mill'.
In 1566, Christopher Schutz, a German immigrant, who invented a process for drawing wire, set up a works in Hathersage. This became important in sieves used by miners, and later developed into pin and needle production. This led to one of the first Factory Acts, because inhalation of grinding dust resulted in a life expectancy of only thirty years. In the mid-18th century, Hathersage became famous for its brass buttons. Some of the mill buildings from this era have been converted into flats.
The cache is a tiny screw top lid container which includes a pencil. There is room for only small swaps and even then only 1 or 2. Please replace the cache exactly as found, and replace the stone too. You do not need to cross the river to get to the cache.
Please note the Difficulty rating when attempting and logging this cache, several DNFs may be caused by the cache being hard to find, it doesn't necessarily mean it's missing
