Geocache Description:


The Vogrie Cachers welcome you to Vogrie. As well as the parkland there are also two playparks, one near the car parking and another further down. The trees along here all have a tale to tell, and have been here for many years.

Once upon a time there was a little chick called Chicken Licken who lived on a farmyard in the countryside. One day, Chicken Licken went to the woods. He stopped by an oak tree. Suddenly a tiny acorn dropped from the tree – wheeeeeeeeee! And hit Chicken Licken on the head – BONK! 
 
Unfortunately, Chicken Licken didn’t see the acorn. He looked up the clear blue sky. “Oh, no!” he said “The sky is falling, I must tell the king.” 
 
So he ran and he ran and he ran until he got to the farmyard where he met Henny Penny. “What’s the hurry?” clucked Henny Penny. “The sky is falling and I’m off to tell the king” cried Chicken Licken “I’d better come too” clucked Henny Penny 
 
So Chicken Licken and Henny Penny scurried off to find the king.  “What’s the hurry?” crowed Cocky Locky. “The sky is falling and I’m off to tell the king” cried Chicken Licken “I’d better come too” crowed Cocky Locky  
 
So Chicken Licken, Henny Penny and Cocky Locky scurried off to find the king.  “What’s the hurry?” quacked Ducky Lucky and Drakey Lakey  “The sky is falling and I’m off to tell the king” cried Chicken Licken “I’d better come too” quacked Ducky Lucky and Drakey Lakey 
 
So Chicken Licken, Henny Penny, Cocky Locky, Ducky Lucky and Drakey Lakey scurried off to find the king.  “What’s the hurry?” honked Goosey Loosey “The sky is falling and I’m off to tell the king” cried Chicken Licken “I’d better come too” honked Goosey Loosey 
 
So Chicken Licken, Henny Penny, Cocky Locky , Ducky Lucky, Drakey Lakey and Goosey Loosey scurried off to find the king. “What’s the hurry?” gobbled Turkey Lurkey “The sky is falling and I’m off to tell the king” cried Chicken Licken “I’d better come too” gobbled Turkey Lurkey 
 
So Chicken Licken, Henny Penny, Cocky Locky , Ducky Lucky, Drakey Lakey, Goosey Loosey and Turkey Lurky scurried off to find the king. “What’s the hurry?” snapped Foxy Loxy. “The sky is falling and I’m off to tell the king” cried Chicken Licken “Follow me, my feathery friends, I can help you find the king” smiled Foxy Loxy. 
 
So, Chicken Licken, Henny Penny, Cocky Locky, Ducky Lucky, Draky Lakey, Goosey Loosey and Turkey Lurky followed Foxy Loxy deeper into the forest.  
 
Foxy Loxy was just getting ready to gobble up the feathery friends when suddenly a tiny acorn dropped from the tree – wheeeeeeeeee! And hit Foxy Loxy on the head – BONK! 
 
Luckily, Foxy Loxy didn’t see the acorn. He looked up the clear blue sky. “Oh, no!” he said “The sky is falling, I must tell the king.” 
 
Foxy Loxy ran off and was never seen again. Everyone looked at Chicken Licken.  
 
“Are you sure the sky fell on your head” they said. “Well, maybe it was an acorn” said Chicken Licken! And they chased him all the way home to the farmyard. 

This cache has been hidden for the Vogrie IX event being held on 6th October 2019. Come and enjoy the beautiful autumn colours in the stunning grounds of the historic Vogrie Country Park. There are 11.5 miles of signed footpaths passing through sweeping parkland, woodlands and the River Tyne Valley. There are many fine trees that tend to confuse your GPS, we have tried our hardest to get accurate coordinates but please be warned! Please return the cache exactly as you found it. Enjoy.

Many thanks to head ranger Jo Cooke and the Midlothian County Rangers for giving us permission to hide the caches.

Thanks to the fellow cachers that made this cache possible!!
