Geocache Description:


This is the third (and final)in our “MONARCH’S WAY” series.

It is a traditional cache.
It is a smallish 1Ltr container so only small swaps please.

The cache is on a well defined but sometimes muddy track.
Please note the cache is on a public footpath, not public road.

The Monarch’s Way long distance walk and the escape of Charles II after the Battle of Worcester in 1651.
For six exciting weeks, and hotly pursued by the Parliamentary forces under Oliver Cromwell, he travelled first north, then south through the Cotswolds and the Mendips to the South Coast, and finally along the South Downs to Shoreham where he made his escape to France.
Loyally supported by his followers, many at great risk to their own lives, he was given shelter in places both great and humble, many of which still exist today.
This long distance walk (615 miles) using footpaths and bridleways closely follows the route taken by Charles II and enables you to visit many historic sites and buildings, maybe only previously known to you through the history books. It also takes you through two World Heritage Sites and six Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty plus some of the finest scenery in western and southern England
The walk is waymarked and is shown on the latest editions of the Ordnance Survey's Landranger and Explorer maps.
