  1. Subject Hidden Poem by Gillian Beattie …….We gave this our best shot.. went to the location rummaged around and found scratched by brambles too.. We are hardened geocachers so miffed at failing here..Any help in finding it would be much appreciated…We wee parked in the layby but the cords suggested it may be the other side of the hedge which appeared to be private property yet a nearby bush had some rather suggestive twigs resting in the ‘V’ as though they had hidden something…Cheers..we are up for trying again (poem 23)
