Geocache Description:

A walk along the river Loddon.

The River Loddon is a river in the English counties of Berkshire and Hampshire. It is a tributary of the River Thames, rising within the urban area of Basingstoke and flowing to meet the Thames near the village of Wargrave. The river has a total length of 28 miles (45 km) and, together with its tributaries, drains an area of 1036 km². River Loddon at wikipedia.

Quite a varied walk which should lead you along a pretty stretch of the River Loddon.

We parked at N 51 20.398, W 001 01.293, then followed footpaths. But you could try and park at N 51 20.617 W 001 00.321. The first parking coordinate is approx a one mile walk to the cache. The second coordinate offers a shorter route, which cuts out a couple of harder stiles.

Avoid wearing sandals, as there are some thistles and nettles.

The coordinate you are following leads you to All Saints sign.

The second coordinate can be visited after finding the first coordinate and completing the question:

x = "How many letters on All Saints sign?"

The second coordinate is:

  • N 51 20.(x-9)06
  • W 001 00.505


Mank and Skank have a cache 'Sunday stroll' not far from here!

In the cache we placed:

A small AM radio, a dinosaur, a crocodile, some novelty rubbers, an Open Source software CD, a rubber bug, refelctive wristband, wooden dog, bag of marbles...(and a themed children's book to be left please!).

Can recommend THE NEW INN at Stratfield Saye, with a great garden for children.
