The Grand Union Canal runs through Rickmansworth on its way north, and it appears to split into two sections at this location as it approaches the town itself.
Access to the cache site is via numerous trails and roads in the immediate area, all converging on the bridge, which although not picturesque in its own right, offers interesting views of canal boats and dozens of ducks, mudhens, geese, swans and possibly the occasional cormorant on the waterway.
You will not need to leave the pathway or bridge to retrieve this cache, but you will need to be mindful of all the people traffic in the area. It will be simple to retrieve and replace the cache, with no one to the wiser, once you locate it. The cache includes some small items, several foreign coins, a log sheet, and some writing tools.
While you are in the area, enjoy the miles of paths and picnic areas in the Stocker's Lake Nature Preserve, or walk further south to see the many unusual canal boats berthed in the Springwell Chalk Pit area. You might also take in the Twitchers (Herts) or Stocker's Lock cache, both to the south along the tow path.
