It’s madness! Madness, I tell you. Meldreth Madness, in fact. A highly productive day of geocaching at the very bottom end of Cambridgeshire.
Well, not really. It’s just that Meldreth begins with an “M” and so does “Madness”, but I guess I could equally have used some other descriptor. How does “Meldreth Mania” sound? Or “Meldreth Mosey”, “Meldreth Mooch”, “Meldreth Meander” or “Meldreth Milling Around”? Or “Meldreth Making Stuff Up” I could have picked any of them, but I went for “Madness”
Anyway, all that is just an aside, but it probably reveals that I don’t have a great deal of actual content to describe this particular day. I didn’t take my camera, seemingly, so I’ve no particular record of my progress and can barely even remember where I parked. Still, I logged the caches, and therefore I evidently went there and found them.
The area being cached is south of Cambridge and east of Royston, sort of, and it is jam-packed with caching series. During the day I did parts of the series called the Meldreth Meridian Walk, the Orwell Outback, and the Shepreth Saunter. Go look them up! Or follow the links here.
In terms of the walk, notes indicate that I parked in Meldreth village and walked west towards Whaddon. This made a clockwise loop back to Meldreth, whereupon I moved the car to Shepreth and walked a big figure-of-eight loop there.
In total, I found 96 caches during the day. A bit of a shame I didn’t make the 100 finds, but then time ran out on me, as did my legs.
Caches found on this day were:
