Sutton and Stanton Harcourt are crisscrossed by a network of public footpaths, many of which bisect at strange angles fields and even gardens! I've always wondered how this strange arrangement came to pass. In general, it's common for traditional footpaths to run along or near land boundaries: at the edges of fields, for eample. But around here, you'll often find yourself walking along a path and discover that you're between somebody's house and their shed.
If you follow this path to the West, you'll see a perfect example of this. This footpath cuts straight through the middle of the land of Nichols Farmhouse: to the North of the path is the house and their lawn; to the South their vegetable patch and woodshed. Beyond that, the footpath runs alongside the fields of Friars Farm, turning right at the site of the old Starveall Barn to eventually reach South Leigh.
Before it does any of that, though, it crosses a tiny footbridge and a stile, and it's here that you'll find the geocache. You're looking for an aggressively camouflaged container in an otherwise-obvious hiding place. Please take care to pay attention to the orientation of the cache container and the inner log container (it doesn't fit well the other way around: if you have to force it, you've done it wrong).
