Geocache Description:

Medium Level cache with part of the co-ordinates for the final Zodiac cache.

The twelve signs of the zodiac each have an element associated with them. The four elements are Earth, Air, Fire and Water.

The Elements

Fire signs are Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. The co-ordinates for Sagittarius will be found in the Aries and Leo caches.

 

 

Water signs are Scorpio, Cancer and Pisces. The co-ordinates for Pisces will be found in the Scorpio and Cancer caches.

 

 

Air Signs are Gemini, Libra and Aquarius. The co-ordinates for Gemini will be found in the Aquarius and Libra caches.

 

 

Earth signs are Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn. The co-ordinates for Virgo will be found in the Taurus and Capricorn caches.

 

 

 

Co-ordinates for the bonus "ZODIAC CACHE" will be found in the Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini, and Virgo caches. A diagram illustrating the series can be found here.

The above co-ordinates are for recommended parking, however other parking is available in the area. You will need to have collected the co-ordinates for the Virgo Cache from the Taurus and Capricorn caches.

Virgo is an ammo box and when placed contained a coffee cup, 2005 date book, child's book, St. George's flag, collectibles and a rain coat. You will also find part of the Co-ordinates for the Zodiac cache.

The Brown Moss Nature Reserve is home to a lot of water fowl and fungi (Aside from the fact that many of these are poisonous, please also remember that this is a nature reserve and leave them in place).

Please be careful when retrieving and replacing the cache as there are a lot of muggles about.

A big thanks to the Shropshire County Council Countryside commission for their permission and assistance in planting this cache.

The ducks would appreciate any donations of bread offered to them. Wholemeal or brown bread is recommended.
