A microcache hidden somewhere in the Oracle centre in Reading.



The cache is a black APS film container (slightly smaller than 35mm, and oval shaped) hidden in the new shopping/leisure complex in Reading. The cache contains a sheet of A5 paper onto which you can sign to prove you've found it, but there was no room for a pen, so don't forget to bring one! The cache also contains assorted things that were small enough to fit - a penny, a safety pin and a button.



It is hidden on the same side of the river Kennet as the cinema, somewhere close to Pizza Hut, Bar Med and Chili's.



You don't need to climb or swim to find it, you also don't need to go anywhere private, restricted, or dangerous.

At last, found this one. It has been on my list for years, but I've never managed to get it. Too many muggles or security guards normally.
An dark evening seemed the right time and cache was soon in hand. I didn't realize it was also listed here, so a belated log. TFTC

Getting close to 50 Navicache finds and it was a disgrace that I'd left this one so long!

Caching today with Westie Walker with Westie - Katie, very well behaved again, Heffalump007, living up to his reputation for "randomness", and Others (aka the caching nobodies) at various times: Bazzer1975, Phoenix Flame, Toffee Apple and Sandvika. A day of urban caching as Heffalump007 had other matters to attend to later in the day - there are things for which even he interrupts his caching. Although there was plenty of opportunity to drive around, all but the first couple were walked around. Caches varied from muggle central to muggle free, not necessarily in the obvious locations.

I was the only one who had not found this cache before so rather than having everyone suffer the wait, hints flowed freely! Just was well, as GSAK seems to export Navicache listings without clues or description. Or is it that Navicache have still not implemented GPX files properly!? TFTC Sandvika #1643

Didn't realise this cache was listed on this site. Took Madame Mazda and myself about three visits until we had a muggle free day and managed to find it. Thanks for the cache.

The cordinates were closer downstairs than they were upstairs, car park was was empty whe Steamhammer and myself went, no signs of security. Found the cache and required lots of poking to try and fish it out.

13:25 A great cache. I admit, I did read the spoiler but it was a busy day and a lot of people around looking. OUT: cinema ticket IN: a fat lady in a green dress

Cannot take any credit for finding this cache because I soon gave up looking and had to 'phone Richard several times until I found it - just to check it was still there. was a great choice of location and my hat's off to those who find it. My only tip is you may need to use something a bit longer than a pen to get at it - I found something. Biggest problem, of course, is not being seen. The detailed saga is in my paper log. Well done Richard ! Robin.
