Yes, I spotted that!  :D

I thought the description had to be filled in by default  :o - maybe they've put the text in white  :-\ :D

I was surprised it got published  ??? No wonder why cachers are moving to other cache sites :o

I am in two minds with this. I have to be honest and say that I rarely look at descriptions on the cache page. The GCW series for example I shall look at No. 1 to get parking co-ords, the other 129 I shall never probably look at.

I am sure that some people enjoy reading a good historic background to the cache or the immediate area, but I am not one of those people.

I can't imagine that this particular cache will be up there with the more memorable caches so I can't really see what a description would add to the cache.

BUT, that is merely my opinion ;D

The cache is horribly over looked by about half a dozen houses, but in fairness the co-ords are spot on and if you stand back and use the 'where would I put it?' logic it should be a nice quick find.
