Paul G0TLG: Oops - sorry folks. Checked the area at New Year and thought I'd archived the cache. Must've had one beer too many!

Geocache Description:

At first glance this one looks like a vacation cache, but my good chums Jenny and Chris live a quarter of a mile away and have promised to check on the cache and do any maintenance. The Erewash Canal towpath makes a lovely walk with bird and animal life to look at

The cache is hidden in a low bush in an area of rough ground alongside the towpath of the Erewash Canal. I've listed it as a letterbox hybrid because you'll almost certainly need the "helper" pictures to find it, as there are approximately two million, one hundred and forty thousand, two hundred and seventy eight possible hiding places to check out.

There are paths to the cache location from the canal towpath and also from the car park of the Asda supermarket.

The initial cache contents include a couple of magnetic pick-up tools, a small Teddy bear, a pocket torch and of course a log book!

Take pictures one and two with you, you can line them up and check you're in the right place. The spoiler slows Chris pointing at the hiding place, which is eight paces from the edge of the rushes.

Hint one - the view from the cache location

Hint two - another view from the cache location!
Spoiler - Chris points to the cache hidey-hole
