How Geocaching Works

The cache is located close to the Kenilworth to Berkswell Greenway, formerly part of the LNWR railway line. This line closed in 1969 and is being developed into a Greenway for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. Also, nearby, there is a good view of an electricity sub station, with its distinctive 50 Hz ‘hum’. The short walk to the cache, from the recommended parking spot (N52 23.325 W001 36.884), passes along an interesting green lane with an excellent variety of woodland plants. However, note that this path can be muddy, and shorts are not recommended because of the vicious stinging nettles.
This continues the series of caches created by ‘A Coventry Way Association’. The association was originally formed to promote a long distance footpath, A Coventry Way, and to support local authorities in the path’s maintenance. Our primary aim was to encourage people to discover and use the local countryside. A book of 21 Circular Walks was produced, broadly based on the main walk. Our plan is to set out a series of caches, located on or near each of the 21 walks. See ‘www.acoventryway.org.uk’ for further information. FTF has the chance to grab a copy of the book.
Appropriately this cache site is dedicated to Trevor (1926 - 2005) whose professional life was associated with the distribution of electricity from source to our 13A sockets. He also had a flair for all things mechanical, but most importantly he used all of his exceptional skills, not only helping his family and friends, but any person he met who was in need. He was a very good friend to both Iris and Cyril Bean, co-founders of A Coventry Way.
The cache is small, 0.33-litre lock & lock style box, containing the normal stuff. It is located on a public footpath on the shorter version of walk 3. This 4.5-mile walk starts at the Peeping Tom pub (N52 23.228 W001 36.072), but the recommended parking spot (space for two cars) involves a round trip of little more than ½ mile.
