We were off to see my sister’s new baby in Altrincham today so decided to set off a bit early and try for some newer caches in the area on the way. In particular, we had our eye on the new The Sparrow Boys caches around Dunham Massey as they have been getting great logs.

We started off with 4 easy caches around the canal and old railway line in Lymm before moving on to the sneaky Sparrow Boys caches.

The first one was the best hide we’ve seen in ages. We got lucky and spotted it immediately but some of the logs have had others searching for quite some time before finding it. That gave us the co-ords to the bonus cache, which was a nice easy Regular sized container.

We only had time for one more of these caches before we were due at my sister’s, but it was another fantastic hide in a place we’d already checked several times. Can’t wait to come back and find the other caches round here.

At my sister’s, I mentioned there was a cache really close to them, so the cousins and dogs set off to find it. It had only had one find, followed by a DNF so we did not hold out hope of finding it, but find it we did :-).

On the way home. we had a DNF on a new cache on a motorway bridge near Sandbach. The cache owner has subsequently checked on it and the cache is indeed missing. We then did a quick Staffs Chuch Gem in Tittensor, just south of Stoke and a drive-by in Swynnerton Woods, not far from M6 J15.

10 finds for us today and a really nice day out for everyone.
