Caches No’s 1701 to 1704 – A Monday night in Bramhope

Monday evening and the weather was still nice, and I had a couple of hours with nothing really pressing to do and nothing to watch on TV so I decided that I ought to go backout and finish the Bramhope Circular walk that I still had a couple of caches to do. There were also another couple of caches in the vicinity so I could make it into a circular walk

21st May 2012 – Pauls pond maybe?  GC3FW0V – cache # 1701
I parked in Golden Acre Park car park and walked through the woods to this cache, dodging the dog walkers who were out in their masses. The cache was easy enough to find, even thought eh GPS signal wasn’t brilliant it brought me near enough the right spot to find the cache

21st May 2012 – Bramhope Circular(ish) – Don’t Drop It!  GC3EE2G – cache # 1702
A cache hidden under a retaining railway sleeper at the top of a steep water filled ditch… I managed not to drop it

21st May 2012 – Bramhope Circular(ish) – The Wine Shop  GC3EE2E – cache # 1703
An easy find under a stile. The last of the Bramhope Circular series for me, took me almost 8 weeks to find them all

21st May 2012 – The golden nano  GC3CHJV – cache # 1704
The hint said that this cache was by a Danger sign, but under the trees the GPS lock was so poor that it was difficult to work out which sign it was… I tried one, no cache, tried another, no cache, widened my search to try others – but I was really getting too far away from the GPS co-ords even with a poor signal. Eventually I tried pushing through under a conifer and found a sign I hadn’t previously seen… and round the back I found the cache
