Please don’t attempt to find this cache, “blind”. I promised the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust Reserves Manager, that to keep disturbance to a minimum, the cache would not involve rigorous searching. For this reason, this cache is very easy, and could be completed without a GPS, as long as you have these instructions and know which way is north.
A ‘glebe’, to save you reaching for your dictionary, is a piece of land owned by local parish church or ecclesiastical council. “Risley Glebe” is the name given to this tiny Derby Wildlife Trust nature reserve tucked away near junction 25 of the M1 motorway.
For a short walk, park on the road at:- N 52° 54.980 W 001° 18.900 The walk to the cache from this point is about 250m and follows a well-made footpath that runs along the side of the stream. Be aware that it can be very wet at times, but for the most part it is even buggy friendly. The nature reserve is entered by a stile or by a gate that I’ve never seen locked (but there’s always a first time). About 6 steps will take you down to the cache site.
Those of you wanting a longer walk can park at the “Lightning Tree”, which is by a trig point at N 52° 55.885 W 001° 18.113 and walk along various footpaths through the golf course to the glebe.
Whichever route you take, the cache coordinates are for the little concrete bridge crossing the brook ( NOT the wooden bridge, there has been some confusion). From the east side of this bridge, walk about ten meters south along the side of the brook. As you reach the fence, there is a large, split tree on your left. The cache is resting in the bottom of the split and covered with a few leaves. Please remove and replace the cache from the back (south side) of the tree to help keep the cover.The cache is an ammo box and contains the usual small goodies.
