I picked this up on 20 February intending to put it straight back out that day or the next, but as usual normal life intervened and it has taken me until now - a whole day short of the two-week deadline - to re-hide it.
I have chosen a spot close but not too close to two other OC caches (both also from Hal-an-tow) in the hope of making it more worthwhile to come and find them. When casting around for a suitable spot I realised I was almost exactly equidistant from the two other caches, and moved to make that more true - so this location and the other two now make a nice equilateral triangle as accurately as the GPS will allow.
The spot is not as pleasant as the cache's previous home, but there is a prospect over the fields, so it's pretty good. If you walk in from the A6 you will pass a modern pastiche of a British Raj pastiche of a maharaja's palace. It's not exactly a blot on the landscape, but I'm not sure why it got planning permission. (I'm just jealous really, I wish I had enough money to build a house like that. I wouldn't, of course, but it would be lovely to decide not to.)
When you get to GZ the cache is on the wrong side of the hedge in the sense that the path is on the other. But that side would have been wrong for the cache in that there is a ditch between you and any hiding places. Where it is D/T are both low - maybe 1/1.5 with the hint and only about 2/1.5 without it.

Out for a little geocaching expedition with grandson Hugo112358, we decided to look for this different type of cache. Hugo was excited by being able to find the cache and take it away! He spotted it without help from me.
We put out crossed sticks to tell any searchers that there is no cache to be found.
A lovely spot. I don’t suppose I’ll find one as nice.
Thanks for the cache.
Further news when I have put it back out.

Nicest route to this first GZ is from the nearby groundspeak cache which has parking close by.
Crosses pasture, but no cows there when set ... plenty of trace evidence that sheep spend time there though !
