Geocache Description:

In the village of Shalford, 5m off a cyclepath/bridleway.

The container is a 3 litre food store. The cache is not at ground level. When picking it up, be careful in case scratchy bramble shoots have grown in the vicinity, they were a nuisance in January and are almost overwhelming in summer.

Do not access from cemetery.

If you are just collecting the cache, then park at the scout hut car park at N 51° 12.840, W 000° 34.100. I want this cache to be easy for geofolk to find. The hint is fairly detailed.

When re-hiding the cache, please ensure the lid is firmly (water-tightly) on, the bag is well wrapped around it and the cache is pushed well into the surrounds to avoid accidental finds. Thank you.

If you want a pleasant 5km walk, start from Guildford town centre, say N 51° 13.980, W 000° 34.555 and head south along the west bank of the River Wey until, after around 1.5km, you reach a lock. Cross the lock to the Island and carry on along the east bank of the river to the path past the lock-keeper's cottage. Go over the weir/bridge and head east. Follow the footpath up the hill, skirting the allotments. Here you join the bridlepath which can be followed northwards. After around 0.5km the path narrows and slopes down to the left. There is a pub to the right... Follow the path, passing the water works and into the playing fields before returning to Guildford town.

This is the first cache I have placed. It was placed initially with "treasures": Mr Bean video, Bicycle reflector, Phil Collins CD, £1 coin, Post-it notes, mini boules and a mini-torch.

This is the third incarnation of this cache, having gone missing twice. It has a printout of the log so far to replace the missing book. If you found a previous version and want to find this one, feel free to place a note and sign either your original log entry (preferred) or make a new one.

Good hunting. You may also be interested in my other caches.

"First to Find" went to The Roos, way back on 6 April 2006.
