The Haslingfield Hunt (Geocaching)

For those of you that have not tried it there is a fun “geocaching” route called the Haslingfield Hunt. If don’t know what geocaching is follow this link for an explanation. It has been there since 2007, but we successfully completed it a couple of weeks ago. We heard about it from friends and thought it would be an idea to advertise it on the site so more local  people know about it. You need a hand held GPS, a note pad and paper and to be able to walk about a mile or so on good paths. All the stages are quite close to each other so if your calculation takes you a hundred miles away you must have got the numbers wrong! It starts by the village sign and more details can be found here.
