Geocaching
geocahingGeocaching is a modern navigation exercise using satellite technology in order to locate markers hidden on the moors. Geocaching is a nationally recognised activity with boxes positioned around the world that anybody can find. The idea behind it is you find something inside and replace it with a personal possession for somebody else to find. Thus continuing the cycle of Geocaching.

Our Low Mill version of geocaching consists of 19 markers out on the moors near Askrigg. Groups are given a GPS navigation device that contains the coordinates for each marker. They are then taught how the GPS's work and how to use them, before being sent out to find the hidden markers.

Geocaching is a fun activity and great for burning off some steam running around on the moors.
