Geocache Description:

Wilburton is a parish of around 800 acres lying on the important medieval route from Earith to Strethamand extending south to the River Great Ouse. As much of the land in the region is fenland, the village's position on the ridge between Stretham and Haddenham at the southern end of the Isle of Ely was important in its growth and success. Listed as Wilburhtun in 970 and Wilbertone in the Domesday Book, the name "Wilburton" means "Farmstead or village of a woman called Wilburh".

The village contains a number of old buildings, and was described in the 19th century as "very neat and contains some excellent houses". These include the Burystead (the former manor house, built c.1600), one of the few surviving half-timbered houses in the region, and the Victoria Place row of cottages.

This is a little waddle around Wilburton of caches in all shapes and sizes. You will need a pen/pencil (and tweezers for some caches). Please wear something on your legs (and have gloves handy) as there are a couple of caches where there are nettles, sorry I didn't have much choice ;-)

From the Parking way point you access the path from the main road (go up the hill a little bit, It looks like someones garden but it is a footpath.
