Wast Hills Nr Alvechurch, Worcestershire

Almost spring :-)
WHW Series

Caches - 10 + 3 extra with a short detour
Length of Walk - 3½ miles

A free afternoon so we decided to head over to the Wast Hills to walk the dogs, oh and pick up a few caches whilst we were there .  The Wast Hills Walk is a series of 10 caches set on a 3½ mile walk.  We've already found the existing caches so I think there are a possible 16 to be found, with a short detour here and there.

Parked up near The Peacock Pub and headed off on our walk.  We'd taken a gamble taking the dogs with us as we'd read about the stiles but we just hoped they would be dog-friendly.  We needn't have worried and we are pleased to report that the route is completely dog friendly, there were quite a few stiles but the dogs were able to squeeze under or around them easily.

Spring is definitely on its way, with lots of signs to be seen, lambs, catkins, daffodils and even the sun put in an appearance for us.

Lots of lambs about on the Wast Hills

A very enjoyable walk which we completed in 1 hour 40 minutes.  All the caches were very straightforward to find with sensible hints where needed and a good variety of caches.

Before heading home we made a detour to find Bonus - 1 by 1, we'd solved this one when it was published but we decided to save it for our trip to the area this afternoon.  We are gradually working our way through the many Blindmouse caches but as it's a bit of a drive out for us it's taking quite some time.  A very enjoyable cache.  We remembered going along this path to a cache we did not long after we started caching.

Then it was time to head home for tea
