Description EN

I've walked this path several times but never seen another human soul on it. Which is a pity, because the walk to this cache affords beautiful countryside views: sprawling cornfields separated by traditional hedgerows, Boar's Hill and Wytham Woods in the distance, and hiding places for all manner of animals. Keep your eyes peeled for deer, hares, foxes, finches and dragonflies.

I suggest approaching from the South, where I've marked a trailhead. Pay attention to the signage and do not trespass through Sutton Farm. It's particularly serene here at sunset but the walk can be enjoyed any time of day.

The GZ is at an old wooden footbridge over Limb Brook, which for at least the last thousand years has marked the boundary between Stanton Harcourt and Eynsham. Does anybody still use this crossing? I've no idea: it's certainly a little neglected. The cache container is a medium-sized ammunition box. If you've not seen one of these cache containers before, please watch my 90-second video showing how to open, close, and not-break it. The hiding place should not be hard to find, but you might need to reach deep to get the cache. Please remember to hide it back as you found it.
