Abbotts Langley Monopoly

Trad: 13 Letterbox: 1
Walked: 7 miles

After a few hours at Elstree for work this afternoon, I decided to head to Abbotts Langley to find a few more caches by geobike. They were mainly in the AL Monopoly series (since all archived) but there were a few others too. The pretty little church of St. Paul’s in Langleybury was one of the first – not actually a Church Micro but still a nice hide.

The local phone box has been turned into a little library, where I found a very interesting read hidden on the shelves!

Another nice caching session, and the bike made things much quicker to get around.

Day #318 – Of Abbots And Kings

Trad: 6 Puzzle: 1 Letterbox: 1 Virtual: 1
Walked: 7.5 miles

This evening I took a trip over to Kings Langley and Abbots Langley to pick up a few specific caches. The first was a letterbox hide, which is part of a series in Kent – yes, really! It was an easy enough find, but I made the mistake of not wearing long sleeves and got nettled to death for my troubles. Ouch.

The next stop was an old Virtual in the grounds of Kings Langley church. There’s supposed to be a “sword” up there somewhere! Couldn’t see it, but found the info to enable me to log the find.

Then I took a little potter around the town and along the Grand Union Canal to find a few more trads.

After that successful mission, I relocated to Abbots Langley a short drive away, to look for a cache with D5/T4 rating, Something In The Pipeline. I had come prepared, so was able to find the little blighter without too much trouble! Must be getting good at this!

In preparation for my visit, I had already solved the puzzle for the nearby Side Tracked – Kings Langley hide. I passed this wind turbine on the way, just as dusk was falling. A good evening’s hunting with only one DNF.
