Yistrang & Urban Meets Rural Series

A series of 8 caches and a bonus on a 2.3 mile walk around Ilshaw Heath.

Parked up near the bakery in Ilshaw Heath and couldn't resist popping in for essential caching supplies before starting off on our walk.

A pleasant walk along part of the Birmingham to Stratford-upon-Avon Canal and countryside around Illshaw Heath.

Frozen Canal

Completed the series in 1 hour 22 mins so decided to head off and do the Urban Meets Rural series in Birmingham.

Urban Meets Rural

A series of 20 caches on a 6.8 mile walk, set on the Northern Stratford Canal, taking in a walk along a Nature reserve and a section of the river Cole .

We set off at 13:37 thinking it was only a 5 mile walk and would finish easily before dark.

Brandwood Tunnel

A very enjoyable walk on a very cold day, the canals were all frozen over.

Ducks on Ice

Completed the walk in the dark, took us 3 hours 10 mins with only 1 DNF which we will return to find in the daylight next time we're in the area.

A Frozen Trittiford Mill Pool, Yardley Wood

Ducks and er..... bricks?

Time to go home
