Eckington: Hi, this looks like the cache needs some TLC. Could the owner please undertake a maintenance visit to check it out and replace any damaged items. In the meantime I'm archiving it but I'll happily unarchive it if/when it's sorted assuming it still meets the guidelines.

Thanks, Eckington (eckingtons31@tesco.net)

Geocache Description:

This is a small black painted plastic container hidden in Regent’s Park.


Regent’s Park is one of the most beautiful of London’s major parks and is known as the "jewel in the crown" of London’s parks. Originally owned by Henry VIII, it was redesigned in 1811 by John Nash, who created a rounded shape, a long boating lake, and a second home for the prince. The park was closed to the public until 1845, when Queen Victoria opened it two days a week. Now it is open every day from dawn to dusk.

The cache is located near a water fountain constructed with funds donated by Sir Cowasjee Jehangir. This fountain towers nearly 7 metres high and dominates the pathway in this area of the park. For more information on Sir Cowasjee, see his bio at the 1911 Edition Encyclopedia. You can visit this location after finding Cara’s College Cache, Criss Cross Bridge, Not in the Zoo, or York Bridge, all in Regent’s Park. It is mid-way between Queen Mary’s Gardens and the London Zoo.

You are searching for a small lock n lock type box. There is a log book and a couple of pens, plus a couple of goodies to swap... You will not need to leave the path to retrieve or replace the cache.
