The above coordinates are for parking, which should be easy unless you’ve timed it to coincide with the school run, when it’s absolute bedlam

This is a multi-cache consisting of four micros and the final cache which is a medium sized plastic food box. Each micro will give you a clue to solve which will give you coordinates to the next micro and so on, until the final cache.

Unless you have a very good knowledge of botany you will have to take with you a book of British Wild Plants as each clue will give you the Common name of a wild flower. You will then have to find the Botanical name and the instructions below will give you the coordinates for the next cache. Depending on the time of year you might be able to see the plant mentioned in the clue. I’ve placed them where I have seen the flowers over the last couple of years. Your wild flower book should be a bit more concise than the Collins Gem Series!

An Ordnance Survey Map of the area would also be a good thing to take as all the caches are on public rights of way. Please keep to the paths and tracks. Some of the paths can be very muddy so wellies are a good idea. A short part of this cache is along a narrow country lane. Please take care.

The whole route is about 5 miles and follows a circular route from the parking at

N51’ 03.167 W001’ 10.158

The final cache contains the usual stuff but the first to find will get a voucher for 18 pints of beer from the local brewery (only given to people over the age of 18).

To start you off, look in your book for the current botanical name of the Lesser Celandine (It has changed relatively recently)
