Alibags: I am afraid to say that this cache has been muggled. I am archiving it, rather than replacing it as I always intended that WelshWitch should adopt it. She will be placing a replacement nearby in the next week or so. Thanks to all those who came and visited my cache.

Geocache Description:

The Wilderness is the name of the park in Porthcawl, in which this cache is located. It has a large lake with a resident population of ducks and geese to throw bread to, a childrens play area and lots of paths and open spaces to walk about in. It is a popular place for local dog walkers and also for local kids.

You are going to have to be careful that nobody sees you approach the cache area and ensure that, once found, the cache is rehidden with care, as there is high risk of it being muggled due to the popularity of this park.

The cache itself is a 2L tupperware style container, which contains the usual logbook and 'goodies'. It is hidden in a part of the park which seems to indicate to me that this was once a Victorian park, landscaped to be a romantic rustic wilderness (in a polite and well-groomed way, naturally!), hence the name.
