We were due at the in-laws for a nice Sunday dinner today but could not resist taking the ‘scenic’ route via the north side of Wolverhampton to bag two caches that have been on our radar for way too long.
The first one was near Autherly Junction, where the Shropshire Union canal meets the Staffordshire and Worcestershire canal. Mrs Bolas Heathens has been tracing her family tree and one of her ancestors, about 3 generations back, used to live in the lock-keeper’s cottage here, so it was a nice excuse to have a look at that too.
The cache was a quick find by Isaac, while all around the snow was falling. It had not been snowing at home, but the closer we got to the area the cache was in, the heavier the snow was.
The second cache was by one of the junctions just before the M54 meets the M6 and is a location we’d been to before for the cache’s predecessor. Another easy find was had by Isaac.
Now, just a short drive to the in-laws and a HUGE Sunday dinner awaiting us. Perfect.
