Beschrijving    English (Engels)

Oldway Mansion was built in 1874 by Isaac Merritt Singer (of sewing machine fame) supposedly modelled on the Palace of Versailles. It is now used by the Torbay Council for a variety of purposes. To learn more about the building checkout http://www.torquay.com/New_Torquay/local/Oldway_Mansion.htm
- this page does have one error in that it says there are 60 free parking spaces at Oldway - there isn't! - Use the suggested parking and walk up the side drive to the mansion.

The listing coordinates are for the first stage of the cache.
This Multi-cache should give you a short tour of the grounds leading to a final cache, a soda bottle preform (see image), in a quiet corner of the grounds.
On leaving the parking location, start counting squirrels seen.

Why count the squirrels? ... If anyone asks what you're doing, you can say you are conducting a squirrel census. :-)
Please give the number when you log your find (or DNF) on GC.com.

Please note that the cache is now on the other side of the tree to the position indicated on the spoiler pic.
