The Pirates TB Base
How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
This cache (like a lot of my caches) is accessible by boat as well as by foot. The cache is designed as a starting/ending place for TBs playing games! The first game being played, stars 'player 13' (TB120AJ) based in this cache and 'Player 69' (TB11SWC) based in 'Stanborough Booty' (GCX301). They each have a ball and are trying to score in their opponent’s base. I have only put a couple of swap items in this cache, as I wanted to leave room for TBs.
The cache is placed on the shores of Windermere in a National Trust site called Miller Ground. This site is located at the widest point of the lake (about 1 mile across) and is a great place to come for a walk and, because of its beaches and public jetties, also a great place to stop if you’re out in a boat. At the opposite end of the site from the cache is a small house, which used to be the site of the old ferry that was rowed across the lake. It is still possible to see the arch on the roof, which used to house the bell that was rang when someone wanted to cross. Also along the path near the cache is a rock with a plaque mentioning Queen Adelaide’s visit to the site (Hence also the name of the hill to the west of the site).
I have tried to put the cache in a fairly quiet location but the site is often very busy so some stealth may be needed! Also although the whole site has fairly good access, with well kept paths through out, the cache has been placed just off the path to make it harder for muggles to find and a short, steep climb is required (hence the 2 for terrain)!
Hope you enjoy the cache.
**very important** - the cache is on the lake side of the wall not the field side. please approach from the right side and DO NOT climb over the wall!
**Update** This cache is now the HQ for the Echo Squadron of the Tan army. Visit: http://www.usageocoins.com/armymen.htm for more info. Down with the green army!
