A trouble-free tramp around the tracks of Titchfield.
This, our first cache, is a small clear food box filled initially with:
Geocache instructions, log book and pencil, fortune teller, stickers, stamper and other small toys.
The box is hidden at N 50.5A.BC3 W 001.1D.EF7.
Use the clues below to find the letters A to F. The clues will take you on a half to 1 mile round tour of the historic village of Titchfield which is famous for its Carnival. This has been held every year up to 2005 on the Monday of October Half Term. In 2006, it actually took place on Sunday October 22nd. See more about the History of Titchfield at (visit link)
Free parking is available in Titchfield Square or the car park off Southampton Road. All the clues are accessible on tarmac therefore pushchair friendly (grass to the cache). However, there are some narrow footpaths.
