Geocache Description:

A multi-cache along the top of the Long Mynd, all within 0.5 Km of The Portway, an ancient routeway. The co-ords. above are for a suggested parking place at the Shooting Box(now removed) but there are several others.It is best done by mountain bike,otherwise there is about 12 Km of walking(but this can be reduced by driving).OS Explorer 217 needed.

This is a wild mountain environment over rough ground, so FULL waterproofs and walking boots/wellies, plus extra insulation, and perhaps gloves, hat, extra food and drink, may be necessary.
The cache is at:N52.32.A B C, W002.52.D E F

(1) N52.32.790, W002.51.234

(2) N52.33.684, W002.50.632

(3) N52.31.781, W002.51.990

(4) N52.33.341, W002.51.372

(5) N52.31.109, W002.52.980

(6) N52.32.039, W002.51.927

Write down the number written on the note inside each tub to complete the co-ords. for the main cache.(The above co-ords. are not in the correct order)

N.B. The shortest way may not be the quickest or easiest way!
DO NOT give co-ords. to other cachers- it defeats the object of the game....
Ensure each cache is fully concealed and up-right(if possible) when replacing.
Please inform me on the website of any problems.
You might like to take in the cache A Bridge Too Far which is also up here.
For R&R, I recommend The Horseshoes Inn at Bridges, The Ragleth or Green Dragon at Little Stretton, or the Bottle & Glass at Picklescott.
