ART OF THE PHOENIX TRAIL (Bucks/Oxon border)
The Cache is located at:
N51° 43.961 / W000° 54.436
This location will take you to meet a sculpture called Three Characters on Poles by Lucy Casson. It's one (three?) work(s) amongst many spread along the fairly flat, fairly straight track. This makes it an ideal 'cache to cycle to, but be warned, at busy times lots of other users on foot, pushchair, bike, wheelchair and horse will also be using the track, which may make recovering the MICRO cache without alerting curious muggles rather tricky. Learn more about the Phoenix Trail and the National Cycle Network on the Sustrans web site.
To reach the 'cache by bicycle, park in Thame or Princes Risborough and enjoy the exercise. If you're walking, I'd suggest parking nearer Towersey or Forty Green. Either way, you can't miss the Three Poles, or the Characters there on.
The full sized cache originally contained:
1x Thing for cleaning gunk out of your keyboard
2x Tealite candles
1x Audio tape, with 'Future Chill' tracks on it
1x Phoenix Trail flyer
1x Dull keyring
Plus the usual: Cache notice, log book, pen, pencil and a bag for trashin'
BUT YOU'RE NOW LOOKING FOR A MICRO!
While you're in the area, I suggest you try Happy Hippo's Four Greens and a Ford, the excellent Virtual Insanity (which I understand was almost called 'Artiste of the Phoenix Trail') by The Knights Who Say Ni! or my own T(H)AME (S)TROLL cache. Both are within short driving distance.
A small experiment - Please feel free to rate your visit to this cache out of ten in your log.
