The coordinates above are for the entrance to a car park in the village of Berkswell. This village has plenty of interesting sights, so allow some time to look around. Near to the car park is the village green, where you’ll find answers to a number of questions to give you the coordinates of the cache.
Facing the green is a row of alms-houses, built in 1853 for 12 aged people of the parish. Beyond this is the St John Baptist Church, built in Norman times. Close by is a natural spring, Berk’s well. The village museum, which is housed in a listed 16th century timber-framed cottage, is found at the rear of the alms-houses. It features a collection of artefacts relating to Maud Watson, the first female tennis champion at Wimbledon in 1884. At the main crossroads there is an old hand pump, located outside the 15th century Bear Inn.
The cache is located near to Ram Hall Farm, an early Tudor building. This is home to the award winning Berkswell sheep’s milk cheese, samples of which can be purchased at the village stores.
Back to the village green, look for the following:
- Two years mentioned near the old oak tree. Subtract the earlier from the later. Answer AB
- Number of holes in stocks. (C)
- Number of posts surrounding stocks. (D)
- Poet and Rambler 19EF to 1980.
- Presented by which club in 1953 (convert from Roman). (GH)
Cache located at N 52 2(A-G).(A+C)(B)(H) W 001 3(D+H).(B-A)(E)(F).
You should be able to follow a public footpath, starting opposite the village green. The cache is a 0.5 L lock&lock style container, with log sheet and some swaps.
This is the 12th in a series of caches created by ‘A Coventry Way Association’. The association was 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 – copies can be seen at the village store. 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.
