Geocache Description:

This is a black breath strip container hidden on the perimeter of Myddelton Park.

Take a walk around the parks and gardens in the Finsbury and Pentonville boroughs of Islington and locate a few caches on your journey.

The cache is hidden at a scenic park that surrounds St. Mark’s Church, built in 1828. This park was developed from one of 6 original squares located in the Clerkenwell district of Finsbury. Today, a walk through the park reveals its age by the maturity of the trees, but it is freshly planted with flowers and shrubs throughout. Myddelton Park is named for Sir Hugh Myddelton, and there is a plaque on a wall that says he was a "Engineer, Goldsmith, and Public Benefactor. He brought fresh water to London." He was responsible for the first organized supply of clean water in London. See The Amwell Society’s Web site for more information.

The park is open during daylight hours and there is a children’s playground on one side. You will not need to enter the park, however, to retrieve the cache.

You are searching for a magnetic key holder. You will not need to leave the pavement to retrieve or replace the cache. The cache contains a log only, so bring your own pen or pencil.
