Didcot and Harwell

After my embarrassing run of DNFs yesterday, I decided to go to Didcot for an urban day. I parked in a handy spot, and got my bike out, plus two spare batteries, and cruised around Didcot, visiting every cache there that I hadn't already done. That went well, so I moved on to Harwell and did the same there. I finished with a line of four trads, and then a puzzle I'd solved. But the solved puzzle was 500 yards up a bridleway that had been churned into gooey gloop, so I was reduced to walking the bike ... uphill. Downhill wasn't much better, and when I got home, the bike had to be pressure-cleaned.

At the end of the bridleway, I saw this plaque:

I wonder what "In Ginge" means.

When I got home, I found that the handle/switch for the Freelander has arrived - I'll fit that tomorrow.

42 caches found, two DNFs. That's more like it!


  1. "in Ginge":

  2. Ginge is the village close to hendred not far from the atomic site.
