Located a short distance from Honington, the track leads up a steep incline towards Honington hill fort. Parking is either just inside the village or off the main A153 at N52 58.613 W0 35.407
The cache is located a short distance from Honington Camp, a hill fort which is probably of Iron Age origin. Covering about 1 and 1/3 acres, the public does not normally have access to the interior, but a footpath runs around the eastern edge of the fort, giving some idea of its size and scope. The site was also occupied by the Romans and in 1691 an urn, filled with Roman coins, was unearthed at the site. Subsequently, many other artefacts have been uncovered, including spears, bridle-bits and swords.
From the top of the track leading up the hill there are 2 options for approaching the cache. A footpath goes directly across the field to the hill fort; alternatively, take the track that runs along the cliff edge, along the tree line.
The cache container is a small tupperware type container. Keep an eye out for hares, often seen in the surrounding fields, and occasional weasels and roe deer. Be sure to visit the hill fort a short distance up the slight slope. The hill fort is located at N52 58.162 W0 34.875
