Geocache Description:

The ‘Route Canal’ caches are part of a series along a stretch of the 77 mile Oxford canal. Set in a stunning part of middle England, the series can all be found along or near this waterway.

The Oxford Canal is one of England's most peaceful waterways, running lazily through the countryside from Oxford to Coventry. It was briefly the principal waterway from London to the Midlands, but was superseded soon after construction by the more direct Grand Junction Canal - now the Grand Union. The canal opened in 1790 to link the Black Country with the Thames. The route connects the two cathedral cities via towns and villages such as Lower Heyford, Banbury, Fenny Compton, Braunston and Rugby. The Oxford Canal has escaped large-scale development and few towns have sprung up on its banks. The southern section is particularly charming and remains largely unaltered.

All of the ‘Route Canal’ caches were set during the height of summer and foliage was dense. Consequently, some of the co-ordinates maybe a little shaky. Please remember to exercise the usual degree of caution when caching near water with children. If you have time, visit the nearby floating shop, their organic ice cream is delicious. On your way to the cache, you may encounter some very friendly goats, we were patting and stroking them for ages but cant guarantee how safe kiddies fingers would be, so please take care. You are looking for a magnetic 35mm film canister. Please ensure that the lid is snapped down ALL the way around the container.
