The Jurassic Way is a long-distance footpath along a limestone ridge that traverses quite a lot of the East Midlands, from Banbury to Stamford - a distance of 88 miles.
Just off the Jurassic Way, near where it passes underneath the A1 near Stamford is Britain's only four-county point. At this point, the counties of Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire, Rutland and Cambridgeshire (or the Unitary Authority of the City of Peterborough as it's now called) meet at a single point. The cache is hidden as close to the exact point as is feasible - unfortunately the exact point is between a stream and a railway line, so it pretty inaccessible.
The cache itself is a standard ammo box, spray-painted brown and green. It's hidden off the main tracks,a nd will require a bit of scrambling. if sending the children in, beware of the nearby stream. The hint has unencrypted suggested parking co-ords if you want to use them - please DO NOT PARK ON THE A1!, as there's no way to the cache from it, and it's really dangerous to do so. The cache looks close to the A1, but it's not.
Original cache contents were:
- Logbook/writing implements
- Teddy bear
- Jules Verne book
- Bag of marbles
- Bottle of mineral water (new and sealed)
- Phase-3 wooden monkey number 1 of 28
- Computer fan
- Duck-shaped nail brush
- Scorpion soft toy
