We’d had two DNF’s on two of our Shropshire Church Gem caches near to home, so as it was such a nice day today I popped out armed with replacement caches just in case.
The first cache is at St Luke’s in Hodnet and one I did not think would get muggled as it’s well hidden. I parked up close to GZ and walked over to look for it. Sure enough, it was not where I’d hidden it but a quick look around the rest of the old yew tree it’s hidden in revealed a bit of camo bag out of the corner of me eye. I checked the cache and it’s looking good, so I’ve just updated the hint a bit and re-enabled the cache.
Next on the list was near St Swithun’s in Cheswardine. This cache was an ammo box hidden at the far end of some lovely woodland on a nice walk from the church. Needless to say, as I approached GZ it did not look good as someone has used a chainsaw to chop the fallen tree the cache was underneath into short sections. They must have found the cache as it was nowhere to be seen. I left a brand new cache a short distance away and updated the cache page.
Finally, the last task for the trip was to drop off a TB that is a padlock and needs to be attached to an ammo box. The TB has a sibling that is a key and the idea is they both meet up and the cacher who manages it, can move the lock to a new ammo box. Our Shropshire Church Gem cache at St John the Baptist in Great Bolas looked perfect for that. A short walk down the old track had me at GZ and I did the business with the TB.
Now to head off back home to get on with some work!
