What is geocaching?

Geocaching is a digital treasure and outdoor hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Players find their way to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location.

Geocaching at Wimpole

Wimpole is now home to its own geocaching game. There are five caches to find all across the estate. Either download the coordinates to your own GPS unit or borrow one of ours for free.

If you borrow one of our units there are three routes to chose from all with different geocaches to find and discover. Once you get home you can log your find on either of the websites below. Enjoy your countryside with an added adventurous twist and become the treasure hunters of Cambridgeshire.

For more information on hiring out GPS units go to the ticket office at the Stable-block. They are given out on a first come first served basis, and can not be loaned out after 3pm.

Some rules to remember

  1. If you take something from the geocache (or "cache"), leave something of equal or greater value.
  2. Write about your find in the cache logbook.
  3. Log your experience at www.geocaching.com or www.opencaching.com.
  4. Caches are hidden but never buried, but be careful of stinging nettles and brambles.
  5. Some of the caches are in areas with livestock, please be careful and practice the countryside code.

So go out play and discover the joys of treasure hunting around Wimpole's wider estate. Keep your eyes peeled though as the geocaches could be hidden anywhere.
