Lactodorum: Hi, this looks suspiciously like the cache has gone. Could the owner please undertake a maintenance visit to check if it's there or not. In the meantime I'm archiving it but I'll happily unarchive it if/when it's found assuming it still meets the guidelines.

Thanks, Lactodorum

Geocache Description:

This is a key safe attached to a metal object with magnets.


 

Enjoy a loop walk around scenic Serpentine Lake in Hyde Park in Westminster. If you begin at Hyde Park Corner, the walk will take you about 1.5 miles and maybe 60 minutes as you search for the 5 caches and enjoy the views. You can also begin at the Serpentine Bridge car park and walk east to Hyde Park Corner, although you will have to circle the lake to catch them all. Posted hours for the park are 5am to Midnight, and it must be very beautiful on a moonlit night. The park is lush with flowers right now, and the large green open spaces give it a sense of peacefulness. Dozens of park benches line the walkways for a quick lunch or a lingering visit with a good novel. The Serpentine boating lake is filled with birds at this time in the season (February), but will soon be a popular boating lake when the weather improves.

Hyde Park is one of London's finest landscapes and covers over 350 acres and it has been open to the public since 1637.

Hyde Park #01 will be found near the coordinates above, which will lead you to a location near the rose garden and a view of the first gas-light carriage trail from Whitehall to Kensington Palace. This is called "Rotten Row" and the sign is one of the clues you should look for while finding the cache.

You will not need to leave the pathway to retrieve or replace the cache, but you should be mindful of the foot traffic along the pathway, since it can be quite busy on even the coldest or wettest day. The cache contains a log only, so please bring your own pen or pencil. When replacing the log, make sure it is protected from view just as you found it.

If you are not from the UK and are planning a caching trip to the UK email me via gc.com if you would like info about London caching, to have a local guide or to meet for a beer. Also have a look at the links below for lots of relevant information.
