The MK Boundary Walk Turquoise Section ran from the western edge of Milton Keynes at Hazeley School, across the countryside and up to the edge of Stony Stratford just north of Calverton. It was one of the shorter sections and one of the easiest to navigate. There were just 17 caches including the bonus.
It was a lovely early autumn day on the day I walked them, and had arranged for Kas to drop me off and then to meet me again in Stony Stratford once I’d finished. It was a Friday so I was limited to the six hour window in between dropping the kids off at school and fetching them back again.
I started at the Hazeley School end and made some pretty decent progress. As I was walking into the final third I started getting a load of pings about new caches coming up. It was the beginnings of the Violet section of the walk, and as luck would have it, the end of my walk was going to be at the start of the Violet section, and I was a couple of hours ahead of the game, so could afford a bit more time.
In fact, even though I was second visit to the scene of the Violet section I managed to get First to Find on most of the ones I tried. Apparently another local cacher who shall remain nameless had been down for a look, found the going a bit hard, and then disappeared off in a fairly foul-mouthed, ranting huff. I found them all. They can’t have been that bad.
Anyway, I loved them so much that I went back the following day to grab a few more of the MKBW Violet ones that I’d started.
Anyway, here’s a few random photos from the day.
The caches I found over the two days were:
- MKBW – Violet 7 – Love letterboxes !
- MKBW – Violet 6 – By the Blue Bridge
- MKBW – Violet 1 – Nr Gorrick’s Spring
- MKBW – Violet 3 – On the curve
- MKBW – Violet 5 – By the Mill Race
- MKBW – Violet 2 – At the car park
- MKBW – Violet 4 – By the sluice
- MKBW – Violet 16 – The Bonus One
- MKBW – Violet 8 – by the stream
