Geocache Description:

This Cache is in the Newhall Valley Country Park in Sutton Coldfield. There are a number of way’s to access this cache the easiest way by car is via the new car park on the Wylde Green Road. Newhall Valley is 'captured countryside'/ old farmland; with working 17th century water mill. The valley runs along the route of Plantsbrook.


There is a cycle track running along the valley so access to the valley is easy and there are a lot of park benches. Access to the cache itself is 'off road' and not suitable for buggies, bikes, etc.

This Cache is the replacement for the Muggled Newhall Valley cache which has now been archived

The Cache is in a matt green ammo box

There are a lot of dog walking Muggles in the valley, but there shouldn't be walkers by near the cache!!

The Opening Contents of the cache are:

  • Camera, please take a picture place back in sealable bag and drop onto the log the number of pictures left ! There are 12 Shots on the camera.
  • Cork
  • Pink star paper clip (Never taken from Newhall Valley Cache)
  • Pine cone(Never taken from Newhall Valley Cache)
  • Scoobie (Never taken from Newhall Valley Cache)
  • Orange Care Bear
  • Little Miss Naughty
  • whistle
  • Car
  • Skate board
  • Dice with numbers on (Never taken from Newhall Valley Cache)
  • Winne the Poo Audio Book
  • Toy Story 2 CD-ROM

When you find the old burnt out car (this valley used to be full of them until they turned it into a country park, it looks like they missed this one, as I cant see any path as to how it got there !)you are on the right track, please be aware there is some broken car window glass around on the floor by the car (not the cache) so keep dogs or kids away !!!

Update !!

The car and the others that where hidden around this area have all been removed, lots of tractor size tyre tracks around, but the cache is fine and still hidden, have renamed the cache from Rovers Demise (was sort of a tribute to the company aswell as the car) to Rovers Demised !!

Enjoy

The improvements to this vally continue and a new board walk (see image in gallery) has been added across some of the boggier land, this now make access to the Site from 2 directions easier, so you can now get to it from the top of Sir Alfreds way./p> G:UK cache rating
