Start at the lat/lon above. Find any one of several identical magnetic clue tickets, providing the lat/lon and a clue to where the cache itself is hidden. Put the clue ticket back then follow the well trodden paths to where your GPS guides you. You should not need to climb over fences or walk where others do not already walk regularly.

This Geocache is hidden in a wooded area behind the park and play area known locally as "The Victory Field" to the north-west of Sunninghill village centre. Free parking should be easy to find. There are swings and slides for the kids, a skateboard area, plenty of room to kick a ball around, and tennis courts. There is a path to Sunninghill village centre in left corner of the Victory Field, as seen from the entrance. Sunninghill has some good restaurants, including "The Raj Vooj" (Indian), "The Jade Fountain" (Chinese), and "The Mezza Luna (Italian).

aerial photo Sunninghill is only a few minutes drive west from Virginia Water, on the A329. Virginia Water is somewhere to spend hours strolling the lake and Windsor Great Park. If approaching along the A329, travelling west from Virginia Water towards Ascot, you will go through a roundabout at the top of a hill, with Sunninghill signed left - the B3020. But keep straight on towards Ascot, down the hill, with steep banks either side. Perhaps 50 yards past a "Childrens Play" sign, take the entrance on the left into the Victory Field (there is a green sign).

Robin and June live at 22 Armitage Court, on the southern outskirts of the village. If you want to visit them for a coffee, or something stronger - in daylight hours, please call on 01344 620775. There is a stone on the corner of our front drive at exactly N 51 23.819 W 000 39.593 (WGS-84) If we are not in, you can at least test the GPS :-) For more details, please see theArmitage Court cache page.

No luck, I'm afraid. I decided there were three possible locations for the ticket, but I didn't see until I got home that they are magnetic so I was looking in all the the wrong sort of places. I'll try again next time I'm going past.

Delighted to share joint FTF with Heffalump007 for the spectacular reincarnation of this cache. It has risen like a phoenix from the charred remains. When you find the cache, you will see this for yourselves!

Super hide, delighted to be the first to log it in so many years since Dodgydaved found it.

Robin, aided by daughter Michelle, deployed the new cache today, the log book of which includes print outs of the two logs below by Dodgy Dave and Lassitude - done years ago. We also made sure there were several clue tickets hidden, just in case some of these get lost.

At last.

Salubrious type cache.

Took a dalmatian and a photie and left a pack of cards.

13:30 Did this over a couple of lunch breaks as I did not have time to complete it all in one lunchtime. Found with relative ease when my GPS decided to start behaving itself. Took a Silva Roamer map reader and put in an indelible marker (Good for labelling geocaches). Took a picture and filled out the log book.

Thanks

Chris
