Caches No’s 1233 to 1236 – A Walk Around York

A Saturday in York called for a walk around the walls and a grab of a few caches where it was possible to do so without interference from the hoardes of people visiting York on a Sunny Saturday

25th June 2011 – York Micro #8 The Red Tower GC1FAMK – cache #1233
I couldn’t find this cache at first – as I was looking on the wrong side of the wall, when I got up onto the walkway I saw where the cache must be and went back to get it, then I had to read all the information boards very slowly to wait for the passers-by to leave the area before I could grab the cache.

25th June 2011 – York Micro #16 Walmgate Bar GC1N5XR – cache #1234
This was a nice easy find as the hint tells you exactly where it is, lots of cars about, but no pedestrians so it was a quick and easy cache.

25th June 2011 – York Bridge #2 Skeldergate Bridge GC1FAMW – cache #1235
A nice easy find hidden under the junction box of the streetlamps in the middle of the bridge – of course I was on the wrong side of the bridge and I spent more time waiting to cross the road than I did finding signing the log and replacing the cache

25th June 2011 – York City Walls Trail #4 GC23VTG – cache #1236
Again the hint tells you exactly where it is, which is good cos there are loads of places it could be ! even knowing that it’s magnetic and hidden on the back of a sign wouldn’t narrow it down too much as there are loads of signs in the immediate vicinity… but with the hint telling you which sign it’s easy !

There are lots more caches within (or just without) the walls of York – I will really have to make a special caching visit here to find them all
