Day #206 – We’re Running Well

Trad: 1
Walked: 1.7 miles

I’ve been meaning to get out caching again with rachel’n’rio for a few weeks, but we’ve both been ill and our diaries haven’t had a convenient mutually free slot until today. We decided to tackle The Running Well, as it filled the blank D1.5/T4 square for us both.

I visited the previous cache which was here, now long-archived. But I hadn’t had a particularly enjoyable experience then, so I had been putting off a revisit on my own. However, with some company it promised to be more fun.

We still weren’t 100% sure about the legitimacy of footpath access to the cache, but approaching from the west we got there quite quickly and the slippery banks which I had encountered previously were much firmer this time around. The baying dogs were safely snoozing in their kennels today too. Job done, we posed for a selfie next to the well:

With another DT square filled, it now means I’ve completed the T4 column, and have just 11 left to do. I’m hoping to polish off another one tomorrow with Kitty!! and Mr Crow near Chipping Ongar. Watch this space!

I aimed for five caches in Runwell and Wickford for today’s hunt. Just as I found No. 1 (in the Park), it started to rain – but I had my brolly so just carried on!
