markandlynn Posted October 29, 2004 Share Posted October 29, 2004 Buried Treasure To get to this cache you need to park in the lay-by on the nearby road its marked private but they only check it every couple of hours so you should be OK and if not it’s only £50 to get the clamp removed. From the lay by go north along the perimeter fence until you find the oak tree. I have hammered some large nails into the side of this tree to make it easier to climb. About halfway up there is a large branch which goes over the high security fence. When you are on the other side of the fence drop down onto the old mattress I have left, try to hang down from the branch as it’s quite a drop! Don’t follow the arrow on the GPS as this takes you quite close to the house and the owner may spot you from this side. Go south for about half a mile and then head off towards the cache site. When you get to the co ordinates use your metal detector to locate the cache, it’s buried near the middle of the clearing (to prevent the owner finding it). The ammo box is in a bag and is marked explosives just to prevent anyone from removing it. Be careful when you dig up the cache as there are some rare orchids growing somewhere in this clearing. Inside are some lighters, matches, loads of chocolate bars and some fireworks. There are also some promotional vouchers for a local night club. After you have re-hidden the cache the real diffculty begins. Head due north until you see the house and carefully skirt around the edge of the garden until you see the driveway. You can get really close to the gates without being seen, you now have to wait until the gates have been opened (they are electronic) and make a quick dash for the outside. Good luck Quote Link to comment
