Geocache Description:

Depending on your approach the terrian is not too bad, there are well walked paths and is definitely push-pram friendly.

The Cache, an ammo box, is in Prospect Park, Reading's biggest open space.

"Prospect Hill belonged to Frances Kendrick. At that time it comprised partly as a farm with a house known as "Diles". The original house was built in the 1750's - with the Mansion House itself being built in Regency style during the 1800's by John Liebenrood who had by then had acquired the site. Today the Mansion is a pub/restaurant and is designated as a Grade II listed building.The surrounding park was not established until 1877. It was later bought by the Corporation in 1901 "for the benefit of its weary workers" via the efforts of its then owner Charles Fiddler, a local entrepreneur who built Queen Victoria Street and Market Arcade in Reading town centre."

The Cache consists of :
3 Miniture cars
1 Bendy Smiley man.
1 "Have a nice day" keyring
1 Geocoin
and a scratch card, of course... (let me know if you win anything)
