Wyre Forest


Enjoyed a day out doing the Arley Loop and other caches today, great weather and fabulous scenery.  It's an area we're familiar with as we've walked here on a few occasions and also mountain-biked in the area in our pre-caching days.
Steam Train

The walk started in the village of Upper Arley near Kidderminster in the Wyre Forest District and takes you through the Arley Estate and past Arley Arboretum.  The return stretch of the walk takes you along the River Severn and we were treated to views of a steam train going up and down a short stretch of track, not sure if they were filming or doing some sort of maintenance/testing on the track/train.

It wouldn't be caching without a few cows thrown in

It really is a beautiful time of year to be out caching, some of the autumn colours are just stunning.

Beautiful autumn colours
Altogether we walked just under 9 miles, we'd have stayed longer and done more in the area but I had to be back to collect my car from the garage for 5.30 but luckily we've left enough caches to make another trip to the area again soon.

Up in the tree
