The co-ordinates given at the top of the page are for parking.
To complete this cache you will walk a mile and a half, (maybe considerably more if your GPS is as naff as ours), but it is worth it !
Often you will encounter wildlife en route, you may see New Forest Ponies, Highland cattle grazing, and you may also see deer, either individual ones or even whole herds of them. (The highland cattle despite their size and large horns are very gentle and won’t trouble you.)
In summer this is a favourite spot with picnickers, and the shade dappled river is popular with hot children, (and overgrown children), wishing to paddle. An (expensive) ice cream van may often be found in a nearby car park on the other side of the river. In winter the terrain is a little more “challenging”, so a severe winter wellies warning should be observed!!! In summer maybe bring a barbeque.
There is adequate free parking, although in the summer it may be busy(ish).
There is no need to leave footpaths except when you are close to the final cache, and even then it isn’t far off.
Since this cache celebrates man's best friend ...........…… FETCH !!!
