Part of the fun of these caches is the way that what you have to do is matched to the story line 🙂.

A series of 6 culvert caches. By no means the most difficult ones I've done, but WAY the longest 🙂.

A series of extreme and semi-extreme caches around Glossop, exploring secret tunnels, wading through rivers, climbing trees - all the sort of things the Famous Five do 🙂.

A two stage problem getting to the cache. And another two stage problem getting back, of course 😉. A long, long crawl and a fitting end to the Famous Five caches on this trip 🙂.

A fabulous walk following the path of the stream onto the Kinder plateau, which had remained unfinished business for me as I was unable to complete it on my first attempt due to a dodgy knee. Returned 15 months later to find the remaining caches in the series, which were in even more outstanding locations than the lower ones, and the rating has been bumped up accordingly.

Now archived as the owners are no longer able to maintain the caches - a loss to caching 🙁.

This series took the highly unusual form of a fairy tale continued on each cache page, loosely related to the cache at that stage. I've taken the liberty of naming this from the most enjoyable part of the route as the series doesn't really have a name as such.

Some great scenery, and a few out of the ordinary hides to make it more interesting 🙂.
