The last cache of the day! We had Simon's mum in tow, which meant that we could "leave a car at each end", as was suggested, and do CC4, CC5, and CC6 in one go.
We continued on along the path from CC5, going up the hill and along a bit of a plateau, past a lovely walled-in green common and a tall radio transmitter. We think we might have gone slightly wrong near this point, not having an OS map with us. We ended up walking back around the west side of the hill, away from CC6, until we met a road and were able to walk back in to civilisation. It added on a bunch of distance, but it was a pleasant path we followed down the hill. Along the way, we spotted a loose sheep which had somehow got itself on the wrong side of a fence. Its little lamb ran back and forth bleating "Mmmuuummm! Mmmuuummm!" Simon managed to herd the sheep along the fence and toward a gate, which Elizabeth opened in preparation, but, when the sheep saw E and Sue standing there, it panicked and dodged past. We had to give up, as it ran all the way back up the path, the little lamb running and leaping to keep up.
By the time we were back in urbanity, Sue and E found themselves pretty tuckered out! But we kept going, lured on by the prospect of CC6. We were impressed by the massive viaduct, which we passed underneath once and across twice. By the time we found the final cache location (at 18.30), it started to spit, but, fortunately, the heavens didn't let loose on us and we had a dry walk back to the car.
We took Mickey America TB.
Thanks for the sixth in the series!
