I didn’t really take any photos of the area during the walk and there was a good reason for that; I didn’t find it very nice! The M42 motorway was quite dominant for much of the walk, there was even a cache placed on top of a motorway bridge which I felt was quite disturbing! Having said that, With 34 Geocaches to pick up along the way, there was bound to be some unusual cache containers to find so that is the only things I took photos of...
This cache container was disguised as a plastic penguin; this was quite amusing when we eventually spotted it peeking out from beneath the bushes.

This skull cache container was equally as amusing but not quite so cute, but still a very inventive and unusual container.

By coincidence I was only looking at this pinecone cache container online the evening before the walk. I think they are quite popular but it is the first one of its kind that we have found so far.

Apologies again for not having any pictures of the area itself but I will leave that to your imagination. I also need to add that quite a few of the footpaths around the Austrey amble were not very well maintained. Many of the footpaths didn’t even have way markers, were overgrown and made the amble into more of slog!
