Geocache Description:


The cache is hidden near a kissing gate where the B4449 bisects a footpath. Just 50 years ago, though, the scene here will have been very different! This stretch of road wasn't built until the late 1970s, so the footpath will have stretched uninterrupted through the fields of Blackditch Farm all the way from Stanton Harcourt to the Tar Wood and South Leigh, as it had for hundreds of years.

This is not a cache-and-dash; there is no safe place to park on this stretch of road. I'd recommend approaching on foot from the trailhead at N 51° 45.131' W 1° 24.499' (Main Road, North of Flexney's Paddock).

The container is a plastic "ammo can"-like box. Please tuck it away deeply into its hiding place to ensure that it isn't visible to people not actively looking for it! Initial contents include a variety of tradables, logbook and pencil.
