Geocache Description:

When we were planning a caching trip along the Kennet and Avon canal we saw that there was a long walk between GCM1KV Picketfield Lock and GCM3G2 Froxfield Lock so while we were visiting the other caches we looked out for a suitable spot that would enable subsequent cachers to break their journey. We found this peaceful place almost exactly "Between" the two caches. There's only room for a micro here, so the cache is a 35mm film canister containing just a log book. Please bring your own pencil.

The cache is intended to be picked up during a walk along the canal while finding its many other caches. If you prefer to make it a 300m cache-and-dash there's room for one small car at N51°24.486 W001°33.718, but you'll probably find this spot occupied by a fisherman's car. There's plenty of parking 1km away at N51°24.205 W001°34.176.

Thanks to Daisy&me for permission to use the cache map and details below.

This cache is 1 of 36 caches hidden along 19 miles of the Kennet and Avon canal between and Thatcham and Great Bedwyn via Newbury, Kintbury, Hungerford, Froxfield and Little Bedwyn.

The towpath is well maintained and suitable for cycling. There is a railway line running parallel with the canal with stations at Thatcham, Newbury, Kintbury, Hungerford and Great Bedwyn, so you could park at one station, walk the towpath finding caches and then catch the train back.
