Summer holidays…..children getting bored? Why not take them Geocaching in the Gorge? The Trust has over 40 Geocaches hidden on its land. Geocaching is kind of like a treasure hunt, All over the UK there are hidden boxes for people to find. Inside the boxes you will find little trinkets like key rings, coins etc. nothing of much value but the idea is you can take something out and replace it with something of your own. There is also a log inside the box where you can write down your name or family name and when you found the box.
All you need to do to start geocaching is download the app, type in your postcode and all the hidden boxes near you will pop up! You then select a box and a compass pops up and tells you how many steps away you are. There are also hints, clues and sometimes riddles about where the box is hidden.You then simply follow the compass and read the clues to find your hidden treasure. If you haven’t already given geocaching a go then I highly recommend adding it to your bucket list! The kids really enjoy hunting for these boxes and the best thing is it’s FREE!!
