Geocache Description:

This is part of a multi cache each loggable in their own right taking you to one final location

LADY HOWARD

My ladye hath a sable coach
With horses two and four
My ladye hath a gaunt blood hound That goeth on before
My ladye`s coach hath nodding plumes
The driver hath no head
My lady is an ashen white
As one that long is dead


Lady Howard is accused of murdering her four husbands and her penance is to travel nightly from fitzford house to okehampton castle on the Kingsway moor land track pluck a single blade of grass and return back again and only when all the grass is gone is her punishment ended. In one version she rides a coach made from the bones of her husband in another she becomes the black dog leading the coach

Each cache will contain a part co-ordinate for the bonus cache. The first 10 caches are all small pots but the last is a good size ammo box. As well as the co-ords you will find a single number in red or blue in four of the caches. You will need these later. You will need to bring a pen/cil for the logs.
