Day #175 – Finchampstead Undulations

Trad: 25 Puzzle: 1 Challenge: 3 Virtual: 1
Walked: 9.6 miles

I went on a road trip to stay in Oxford today, but why go directly there when you can detour via some interesting caches around Finchampstead? Why there? Well I was really after The Queen’s Oak, which fills the June 2001 Jasmer Square. Nearby was a lovely old virtual too, and the Finchampstead Undulations circuit.

However, my first port of call was to pick up a couple of Challenges in the area, and they were both easy finds. The 366 Challenge also earned me a new D5/T2.5 square for the grid, which is going well!

The Finchampstead circuit was extremely muddy in places, and I had to DNF one or two hides, but overall it was a great walk with some grand views.
