I needed to go shopping and I needed a cache too, so I popped over to Hadleigh to pick up a couple of newly placed caches. I parked in the nice big free supermarket carpark near the centre of town. The supermarket has been built on the site of the former Kingsway Cinema and the first cache that I was looking for was commemorating the Kingsway. 

Tractor Andy, a recently retired local cacher has an interest in old cinemas and is starting a series called The Last Picture Show. He has one in Walton-on-the-Naze which I have found, The Kinema. However he has plenty of opportunities around the Southend area, which used to have numerous picture houses. I look forward to Andy expanding this series as I too have an interest in old cinemas.

The trad cache, itself, was quite tricky but I got there in the end.😀 Andy had set another trad cache a few hundred yards away called A Cache To Cache A Scarecrow. This was set on the boundary fence of an allotment site. I’m sure that the cache had been placed to wind up his geocacher brother, who has an allotment here. I can’t remember if Scarecrow Rog got the FTF here but if he didn‘t, I’ll bet things were frosty for a while.😀 This was another tricky hide but soon found with the generous hint.
