Despite the foul weather I really enjoyed exploring this little nature reserve (and not just because it gave me a break from my cross-town cycle!) Photos attached of me by the notice
board, down by the cliffs, and of the cliffs with me pointing at them (because otherwise those cliffs could be anywhere; but only I would wear a jacket like that!). Email to follow.

Looks like I must have been there JUST before mumzoid970! Following the coordinates, I was standing almost on top of it (well, as close as one can get!) before I thought to look down
and spotted it. TFTC.

My favourite cache of the day! A wonderful little adventure!
I’d not noticed when I copied the data to my GPSr that this find was going to involve as much leg-work as it did! Starting in Headington, I collected the clues, zipping effortlessly
around the locations by bike. Then, sat on the side of London Road, I came up with the coordinates. HOW FAR? Wow… it’s a good job I’m ready for a decent cycle, today, and I’ve got a few
caches down that way that I’d like to collect anyway.
Several miles (and many caches) later I found myself getting close, hoping that I’d not miscalculated or gotten the wrong numbers. When I got close, it became clear to me where it was
likely to be hidden: but the recent rain had made the ground treacherously slippy, and I struggled to get the cache, between groups of people walking past, without falling over!
I have no interest whatsoever in football, but I thoroughly enjoyed this cache… as well as enjoying learning a little bit of local history! TFTC!

Found with no difficulty: while cycling down from the main road my GPSr basically pointed right at it! TFTC.

Found this on my way down from Horspath Nature Reserve. Nothing exciting happening on the test track, but I did notice that the signature before mine in the log was that of
Fraig2010, who recently dropped off my Travel Bug at Famous Grouse, the final step of it’s journey! Maybe I’ve just passed him/her…

Nice “mechanism” to help with the retrieval/hiding of this little cache. Somebody going into the village hall gave me an odd look as I lifted my bike over the gate!

During a nice stroll around this lovely nature reserve (including a look at the artificial “bat cave” that’s been formed out of the remains of the old railway tunnel), I found this
cache after an embarrassingly-long hunt. I choose to blame my GPSr being thrown off by all the trees, but in actual fact it’s my bad observation skills that are to blame for this one
taking me so long! Lovely little cache; delighted to have found it!

This cache was a primary goal of mine, today, because a travel bug I set off on it’s travels (a long while back, and in Wales), “The Oxford Scouting Party”, had safely landed here and I
wanted to pick it up. Coming up the path from London Road after such rain was a mistake, because the path was wet and slippery, but I got there in the end and found the cache without
too much difficulty (although I did need the clue to help make sure I was looking in the right place!). Took my travel bug, left a rubber bouncy ball and a sliding puzzle of a tiger.
And I did get to see a grouse or two on the way up! Two grouse? Grouses? Grice???
Thanks for a wonderful cache and an enjoyable walk.

After a hard uphill trek through slippery mud (in inadequate shoes) I got to this easy cache. Lots of stuff in the box, but TNLN. Thanks for giving me an excuse to stop for a break
before pressing on to Famous Grouse!

Should have been easy, but not one but TWO cars were parked right in the way of the cache… and one of them was being unloaded by it’s owners at the time! I stood around with my bike,
looking like a wally, until they went away, and then squeezed past to find the cache. TFTC.

Wonderful little cache in a devious little hiding place. Looked in the right place several times before I thought to let a curious finger do the exploring for me! Got strange looks from
passers-by and so had to pretend to be on the phone… Great cache: thanks!

I’ve visited dozens of times – I only live around the corner – but never realised that it was a virtual cache. Picture doesn’t include me nor my GPSr because (a) my GPSr (on my phone)
is my camera and (b) I couldn’t find anybody to take the picture for me (there was only a confused-looking traffic warden around). So you’ll have to suffice with a picture of the

Found without lid nor magnets, soaking wet, buried in pile of leaves: this one’s a goner. I’m removing the cache and I’ll arrange to get it back to it’s owner as soon as possible, but
until then this cache should be considered absent!

Excellent cache! One of my favourites of the day’s hunt: and I was so glad I wore laced shoes, as you suggest, because that made all the difference when it came to retrieving and
replacing this fabulous little cache. Log was full – couldn’t find space to write – so I’ve instead taken a picture of this imaginative little cache (warning: photo contains minor
spoilers about what you’re looking for).

I love this park in the summertime, but in the depths of a wet winter it was more than a little difficult to get to the cache, and involved wading through ankle-deep water in the swampy
area around the cache! Persevered, though, and found it in the end! TFTC.
