Caches at roadside milestones

Recommended Posts

Hi Nick, We have several mile stone caches.. Our Miles Apart series are next to mile posts...

 

Miles Apart A GCKMHE

Miles Apart B GCKMHH

Miles Apart C GCKMHM

Miles Apart X GCKMHP

Miles Apart Y GCKMHR

Miles Apart Z GCKMHT

Miles Apart GCKMH6 (Not next to a mile stone but you have to get details off a stone before finding it)

 

Also GC13HKP, In the Pink.

 

Not ours but The Mile Post... GC1BN56... You get the picture of the post... the challenge is to find it....

 

Regards M

Thanx, keep them coming.

Have asked Google what it knows, but milestone also refers to number of caches found.

 

Google have this site specific search

"milestone -find -list site:www.geocaching.com" filters out numbers and bookmark lists leaving just caches.

 

There are some lovely caches involving mile markers now on the list.

Keep them coming.

Thanx for all the suggestions. Have added toll houses.

CO has asked me to remove Bagshot from list. Not sure cachers are that perceptive. Many only look at coords and clue.

Reading recent logs. Some got it straight away.

If CO want to be really clever a more prominent link instead of just putting a text link to Milestone Society could be to include their masthead image.

My own "Give us a hand" GC2A6K8

 

It's been muggled about 5 times, so I'm in the throes of moving it slightly, but the theme remains the same. Sadly, it's now lost its rather fun original clue, but you can't win them all.

Although the hint mistakenly says trig point, there's one on the road from Henley to Wallingford GC48JZY. Nice for me to find a stone with Oxford written on it!

There was a series along the A5 in/nr Milton Keynes based at/on milestones. Sorry I don't have a link but I suspect they're still there.
