The Bracknell Ramble Mystery Cache
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
The Ramblers Route is a 26 mile/42km circular walking trail through the countryside around Bracknell. The walk follows footpaths, bridleways and tracks through varied scenery. This cache will take you to explore some of the countryside along the route.
Your starting point is the beautiful 11thC church of St Michael the Archangel, Warfield. The coordinates will take you to ample free parking in front of the cemetery. Please don't park in the church car park even if it's open, as it's usually locked except during services and you may find yourself locked in. For obvious reasons, parking may be a problem on Sundays.
Things you'll need:
- Seven hours if you intend to complete the cache in one attempt by car
- Stout walking boots, especially if you intend to walk the whole of the Ramblers Route
- Access to the Internet in the field, either by PDA/GPRS or similar, or by phone-a-friend (preferably non-cachers)
- Pen/pencil and paper
- A sense of adventure
This bit should be obvious but we'll say it anyway. You must sign the log book in the final cache in order to claim the cache. This will become clear when you get there. If we discover that your online log isn't supported by a valid entry in the cache logbook...well, just make sure it is.
Please don't give away locations, distances or clues in your logs, as this might spoil the adventure for others.
This cache has been a long time in planning and has taken quite a lot of preparation. We hope you enjoy finding it as much as we've enjoyed placing it.
||To start the hunt you'll need to explore the exterior of the church and find the image on the left. Within a few metres, on the same wall, you'll find a plaque dedicated to a local worthy.
