The "ghost pub" Robin and I had sought (see my log on GC4HW7M) had turned out to be The Packet, not "The Track" as Robin has mis-remembered during his Challenge Robin adventure yesterday ( https://danq.me/challenge-robin-2 ). After a delightful couple of pints and a roast beef lunch, we plodded on to this cache. We skipped HR9 and HR8 (although we almost didn't, thanks to a wrong turn!) and found this one instantly: my geo-sense tingled at just the right moment.
Now we were on the way home, working our way up a damp path to the North once more.
