St Mary Magdalene Church

Croome Ponders

7 caches - 3 mile circular walk

We recognised the location as soon as we pulled into the parking spot from when we'd done Croome Cache back in June 2008. 

Interestingly we remembered that the location was used for the filming of the TV series Survivors and we recognised the house from the programme.

Thoroughly enjoyed our walk around Croome Park, the caches were quite spaced out which was perfect as this leaves you with plenty of opportunity to enjoy the surroundings between caches.

Completed the walk in 1 hour 40 mins.

Then it was back to the car for lunch and off to The Old Folly and DON'T BE STUMPED, a very nice couple of caches in an interesting spot.

We were intrigued by the folly and wondered what it had looked like when it was first built, on our return home I looked it up and it seems that it was actually built as a ruin and looked just like this back in 1797. You can read about it here.

The weather was perfect for caching today, the car thermometer read 19°C!  Must remember to put the sun-cream in the caching bag.

Then it was time to head home, picking a few drive-bys and shorter walks on the way.
