The Thicket and Beyond – Hemingford Grey, Peterborough.

The day had started with dark skies and rain: so it looked as though a second day’s caching was off the cards but, by the time we’d finished our breakfast, it was looking a little brighter so we decided to drive out to do a couple in the nearby village of Hemingford Grey.

We parked by a row of cottages and when I fired up the app it showed that we were parked literally right on top of a cache. This one was soon in hand and we were off.

Passing down beside a fence we encountered this odd tree,

As we passed by the gardens – of huge houses (one had its own lake and peacock enclosure) we certainly noticed the signs of spring.

The caches were all slightly different,

But my favourite cache of the weekend though goes to this beauty.

It was hidden down under a bridge. To reach it you had to cross a road, go down a slope beside the road and then traverse a concrete pathway beside the river. Here’s the man in action.

Along our route, we passed by a cool church micro,

And we even met this cute cache.

All in all we had a really good days caching and we found many more caches than we had expected to.
