Checkendon Geocaching

On The Hunt For Dinosaurs

We all went on our first geocache, one that was just round the road from home in the woods outside Checkendon. The girls loved it!

Cache Details

Below are details related to each of the thirteen caches on this walk. Left-click on the cache title (e.g. Cache 1) to show the details for that specific cache.

Each cache has its position (Degrees and Minutes, and British Grid Reference) and a clue on where to find them if you’re having trouble.

The caches are also marked on the route map below, but be warned, this may not be 100% accurate so it would be best to use it more as a guide.

As not everyone would want to see the clues immediately, they’ve been set up so that they’re not instantly visible. You have to left-click on the “Hint” button to show the clue; left-click it again to hide it.
