The Other Stu's 40th Birthday Series

All Saints Church, Ridgmont

Headed down to Milton Keynes to do The Other Stu's Birthday Series today.  Parked up in the village of Ridgmont and off we went.  A sunny but chilly start to the walk but we soon warmed up as we got walking in the autumn sunshine.  The series is set on a 9.5 mile circular walk in the countryside around the small village of Ridgmont.  Just as we left the car Mark remembered he had a Geocoin in his pocket which wants to accompany cachers on a day of caching  We decided this would be a good a day as any so we photographed it at every cache. 

Along the route we passed some interesting/unusual sights including a company that exports London black cabs and a house that seemed to collect Austin Maestros in the garden and use them as garden sheds, not to mention the many disused agricultural trailers opposite the house.

Unusual garden storage

All the caches (apart from 1 DNF ) were easy to find and the terrain was very easy going.

All the cache listings include information from each year of The Other Stu's life which was very interesting and kept us amused on the walk.

Segenhoe Church

On the way round we spotted a multi-cache that we hadn't planned to do but decided to give it a go as it was in such an interesting location.  It was Faith No More which was set at the now disused church in Segenhoe.  It took quite some time to gather the clues together,and at one point we considered giving up but perseverance paid off and we had the final co-ordinates.

All in all a very enjoyable walk which we would highly recommend.
