Geocache Description:

Maskun ensimmäinen geokätkö on piilotettu Nunnanlähteen muistomerkin lähelle Lankilan kylään. Sinne pääsee kääntymällä itään valtatie 8:lta Maskun kirkonkylän kohdalta. Paikka on Pakaisille johtavan tien pohjoispuolella, tienviitassa lukee Killinvahantie.

Nunnanlähde lienee saanut nimensä Nunnanpolusta, jota pyhiinvaeltajat käyttivät keskiajalla kulkiessaan Turusta Nousiaisiin Pyhän Henrikin ensimmäiselle hautapaikalle.

Kätköpaikka on muistomerkiltä kaakkoon, tien vieressä samalla puolella tietä kuin muistomerkki. Kätkö on pienehkö pyöreä muovirasia.

This is the first geocache in Masku. It is hidden near the memorial of Nunnanlähde ("Fountain of the Nun" in English) in the village of Lankila. The place can be approached from Masku centrum, east of highway 8 towards Pakainen.

The memorial is on the northern side of road. Follow the signpost "Killinvahantie".The name of the place refers probably to Nunnanpolku ("Path of the Nun"). This path was the medieval route from Turku to Nousiainen, used by the pilgrims to go to the first grave of bishop Henrik.

You can find the cache south-east from the memorial stone, the same side of road. The cache is quite a little round plastic box.
