Middleton Cheney

All Saints Parish Church
 TCR Series

Caches - 17
Length of walk - 3.5 miles

The series starts in Middleton Cheney, a village just East of Banbury and takes you on a circular walk along footpaths to Chacombe and back again.  A very pleasant walk with a variety of caches sizes to find.  All were straightforward finds with very useful hints.

A couple of the fields had cattle in them but this wasn't a problem for us, although some people had reported on previous logs that they'd had problems with bovine beasts at #10 but we were lucky here as they were all at the other end of the field and didn't seem to notice us so we just strode briskly across until we got to the other side of the field.  We didn't have our dogs with us today so can't really comment on the dog friendliness of the walk but there were a number of stiles to negotiate on the way round and as mentioned already, the cows!

We completed the walk in a little over 1½ hours.  Then it was back to the car for our lunch.

A few days ago Mark had noticed that there was a cache not too far from here that hadn't been found for over a year and had no DNFs or anything to suggest there might be a problem with it so we decided to go and resuscitate it in order to qualify for another Resuscitator challenge cache.  We parked in the pretty village of  Byfield and made the brisk walk to the cache, just under 3 miles in total there and back.  Then after finding a couple of Just Northamptonshire caches (we're gradually getting through them) we headed home.
