Geocaching is growing in popularity and is a great activity for all, combining nature and technology in a fun and family friendly way.

New to Geocaching?  Geocaches are hidden all over Britain, they are found using GPS devices. Participants download the GPS co-ordinates and then hunt for the container (cache) hidden at that location.  Once the cache has been found the finder logs their find and returns the cache to its hiding place, sometimes other items might be in the cache waiting to be discovered.

There are a number of geocaches hidden around Kirkby Stephen, can you find them all?
