Geocache Description:

A micro cache in the Forest of Bowland village of Dunsop Bridge which replaces a virtual cache with the same name (GCGGVB).

The cache is very close to the BT phonebox (the 100,000th) which was placed to mark the village of Dunsop Bridge's status as the nearest habitation to the centre of Britain as defined by the Ordnance Survey.

The actual centre is in the hills to the north and Langden has placed an excellent cache called Whitendale Hanging Stones (the Centre of Britain)(GCNQNK) to mark the spot. You can park in the village and walk to it, bagging two further caches along the way!

The tiny village is overshadowed on all sides by the hills of the Forest of Bowland. Beatrix Fell is to the north east, Sykes Fell is to the north west, Totridge Fell is to the south west and Birkett Fell is to the south east.

The River Dunsop and the River Hodder join forces at Dunsop Bridge before flowing south to join the River Ribble outside Clitheroe.

Dunsop Bridge is a popular starting point for walkers. From the church the road leads to Sykes Farm and then climbs to the summit of the pass along which the Lancashire Witches were taken to their trial at Lancaster Castle.

The cache is a 35mm container which is placed very near to but NOT IN the phonebox.
