Geocaching in Wellington

Geocaches are usually accessible 24/7 and there are around 3 million around the world, with 8 in Wellington.

Geocaching is a free real-world outdoor treasure hunt. Players try to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, using a smartphone or GPS. It’s fun, free, takes us in to in the great outdoors, and makes walks, especially with children, all the more adventurous. The http://www.geocaching.com website will tell you lots more about this activity.

Part of the fun of geocaching is the chance to take away a small treasure that is in the cache and replace it with something of equal value, so head out armed with some unwanted trinkets. As the mother of young children, I have taken the opportunity to deposit plenty of trinketry in the geocaches I have set around the parish. There is also a log book to sign in each geocache.

Examples of caches in the village are Adzor Amble; Em is for Music.
