Geocache Description:

The cache is located on a foot-path over looking the onny valley. It was once used by local people as a way to get to St John the Baptists church in nearby Stokesay.

The cache is hidden on a foot-path just over a mile from Stokesay castle a 13th century fortified manor house which is well worth a look around. The castle was built by the leading wool merchant of his time Lawrence of Ludlow. Lawrence was a truly self made man and was able to lend money to both the King and noble men. Work began on the castle in 1281 and was more of a status symbol than a castle, as it was built more with comfort in mind as opposed to defensive capabilties. Unfortunately for Lawrence he was unable to enjoy the fruits of his labours as he was drowned in a ship-wreck in 1294. Parking at the castle is available but the gates do get locked at closing time, or you could park at the end of the track if you take the easier quicker option.Sensible shoes or boots are recommended as the track can get muddy. Take care when crossing the railway tracks and beware of the stinging vegetation in the summer months. Inside cache original contents are:eraser,2 English heritage badges,Roman key ring,post card of King Richard III,Wolves speedway pen,cd wallet,clock,torches,shoe laces,plus log book and pens. Nearby caches include Stokesay Church and Old Bill, View Edge, both of which can be done with Sunday best as a five and a half mile circular hike which takes about three hours.
