February – part 2


My next geocaching outing with my sister was to the village of Oakhill where there are 3 church micros, two of them multis.  One of them Church Micro 6190 – Oakhill URC is now split into 2 private dwellings – I went marching up the driveway to take a photo and realised when I got to the locked gate that it was no longer a church.  For the question we had to walk up a nearby road to get the answer.  The actual cache was half a mile away with a steep hill to climb.

The next multi was at the CM 6114 – Methodist church – no photograph as it would be a spoiler! Again the cache was a half mile walk with another steep hill, when we got there we realised we had been there many times in the past – not always when geocaching, although we had walked past when doing some of the Zider Zeries.

We sat in the sunshine in the churchyard of CM 6113 – Oakhill All Saints for a while, after all the rain we have had this winter it was good to feel the sun.

I found in the village that the GPS was taking ages to settle after I had entered the new co-ordinates, there were quite a lot of overhead wires in the village so I don’t know if that was what was affecting it.  In the end we looked at the hint and on our way to another cache we found it.  While in the village we found two more of the Zider Zeries which we are doing in stages.

The next villages we explored were Croscombe and Dinder near Wells, Somerset.  There are two Church Micros in the village and another cache which was in a field with cows we decided not to cross the field, we don’t like going into fields with cows we are not that brave.  In Croscombe we decided to go to the pub (The George) for morning coffee, I tried the door but it was locked, as we walked away the landlord opened the door and invited us in so we had a very nice drink complete with a plate of biscuits.  Such good hospitality.

Dinder was just the Church Micro a pesky nano which we found after quite a search, we then enjoyed a walk around the village. There is another cache near the village but I had found that one previously.

At the end of the month I found a cache called End of the Road, on a lovely sunny Sunday morning. The cache was at the end of a country lane and was a very small bison tube, I was surprised it was not a bigger cache as it was not near any houses.

Did you get your Leap Year Event souvenir?  I was busy during the day but luckily there was an evening meet in Frome which I was able to attend to get my souvenir.
