Geocache Description:

Fairly easy multi-cache located in Milton Country Park, just north of Cambridge, and just off the A14 and A10.

The above co-ordinates point to the Country Park's car park - it's free parking, but the car park gates are closed at 18:00 (I have also been warned that the gates will close at 16:30 in the winter) , so look out if you're driving here in the evening! You can still park in Milton itself, and it's a nice village to wander around - 4 good pubs can be found on or just off the main road through the village (The Waggon & Horses is our favorite - try out the Bar Billiards there).

A general warning for the whole park: There's plenty of ponds/lakes and ditches, so keep an eye on children if you bring them along. Please keep dogs on a lead.

The cache co-ordinates are N 52° 14.a6b' E 0° 9.dc0

In the car park, at N52° 14.213' E0° 9.641' is a sign with information about the park. It mentions that the park opened in the year 199A (e.g 1998 means A is 8).

On the main map of the park in the car park is a label indicating that the park has running through it the "nth Public Drain". n is a two-digit number, the second digit of which is number B.

The remaining digits are on a memorial pillar located at N52° 14.183' E0° 9.934'. The text on it is arranged in rows/spiral, and the number of rows of text on the front of the pillar is number C. There is a date in May mentioned on the pillar, this number is D.

The cache itself is located in undergrowth, about 20 metres off a main path. The GPS signal may well fail you when you need it most!

  • 12x8x32 speed CRDW Drive
