I found myself in Sherfield-on-Loddon, to give its full title today for a short, 3 mile, series that started and ended in the village.
Parking was easy enough an I started my walk outside the White Hart Pub -in the village, which of course makes an ideal refreshment stop when you finish (or start!)
This was a nice, easy series to complete on a lazy Sunday. The weather, raining again of course, meant that muggles were non-existent and all of the hides were nicely done. Nothing outstanding but logs were all kept dry which is what you want. The series was almost spoiled (I say almost as I actually found them) by two caches out of the ten that had been placed in Ivy covered trees. As any cacher will tell you, finding a cache in an Ivy covered tree is like finding a needle in a haystack, in the dark, with gloves on. Still, I wouldn’t let this detract from a nice series all round.
Not much in the ‘Wow, look at that’ stakes for scenery, although the church was pleasant enough and I took time here to read some of the gravestones.
Be aware of a walk up the busy A33 between caches 3 and 4. Keep a careful watch on junior cachers and geo-dogs.
