Geocache Description:

This cache is a short walk around the north edge of Lansdown hill. The views over Bristol and Keynsham are simply amazing on a clear day. The walk is a very straightforward 1.5 miles over flat ground, and is as such well worth the visit.


The site is the location of the Battle of Lansdown of which there is more information here Here. The walk up to the cache takes you past what is probably one of the best views of Bristol on a clear day. After the cache if you choose to take the alternative route back, there are also excellent views of Keynsham.

I have constructed the cache as a multicache in order to direct you over conveniently over footpaths to the cache. At no point should you find yourself diverting from public footpaths. When we set up the cache we had to keep waiting for the children as they kept finding places to play in the woods etc.

You can park on the road very close to the cache location.

The original contents of the cache are:

  • Devil's Eyes
  • Hotwheels Car
  • Set of 5 Dice
  • Photo Bunny TB
  • PC Zone Demo Games CD
  • Superman Pen top
  • Unused TB dog tag

The clues are as follows:

Virtual Cache 1

The location of the next cache is N51°25.F06, W2°24.1N6.

The Actual Cache

The way back

You can either go straight back from here, or if you take the route to waypoint N51°25.508, W2°24.453 there is a nice walk through the woods before heading down a road back to the parking area.
