Geocache Description:

My first UK cache ! Its on the Stipersones in Shropshire. Park at the NT car park at N52 34.404 W 002 55.918 and walk up the path towards the rocky outcrops on the skyline. Follow your GPS but be careful of the last few feet. There is a steep little drop and lots of loose boulders so its best to walk around this and go in from below.

This cache is located on a beautiful hill in Shropshire called the Stiperstones. Its called Whinberry Pie because of the abundent whinberries that grow here (these are similar to bilberries). For more information about this location which is also a nature reserve follow this link www.shropshirewildlifetrust.org.uk/nr_26.html
After you have found the cache walk on along the ridge and you will be rewarded with wonderful views.

The cache is in a small ammo box and started out with:
a logbook
a boot necklace
A womble
A Riyadh home base store key ring
A small torch
A plastic bracelet
A sea shell - real
A sea shell fossil from Saudi Arabia
and an Avebury rubber

and a travel bug

Happy Geocaching
