Evidence of Autumn: Geocaching on Knettishall Heath, Suffolk - 7th October 2018

We decide to take the bikes over to Knettishall Heath for a bike ride, except that it turns out there aren't actually any cycle paths in the area. So after a bit of pootling around, we abandon the bikes and head off for a walk in the woods and heath instead. This turns into a spot of Geocaching, thanks to a phone app that Isobel has, and Fred's recent geocaching trip to the same area a few months before.
