Geocaching volunteering at Brimham

As a National Trust volunteer, Pam Westley looks after a series of 13 geocaches hidden all around Brimham for visitors to discover. She tells us more about this activity, and why she loves it so much here.

'What I particularly love about geocaching is that it gives people the chance to visit places which they may not otherwise have visited. It’s also a great way to spice up walking in glorious countryside, particularly for children who may need convincing of the joys of walking.'

- Pam Westley, Brimham Rocks Volunteer
