Join the digital treasure hunt

Try your hand at geocaching

Become a 21st century pirate and hunt for our buried treasure using satellite technology rather than a treasure map. 

Geocaching is fun and easy. You can borrow our GPS devices to enable you to locate the treasure hidden in our grounds.  The devices are easy to use, and we'll provide you with a step-by-step guide.

Happy hunting!
