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.

I’ve had the final co-ords for the Maldon Water Tower for over a year, but never got around to finding it as I ran out of time on my previous attempt. I thought it was about time I rectified that this evening. Gilly’s Secret Garden was within a reasonable walking distance so I pottered over for that one too.

The light was fading as I  found the caches so I didn’t take any photos. But I made a few images in Chelmsford earlier in the day, including the reflection of this shiny Vespa wing mirror:
