National Trust: Geocaching at Sheringham Park

As our car is not 100% , we didn’t want to go far until repaired.   As the weather was a bit warmer we set out to Sheringham Park to try geocaching.  I had already done it before so I knew where each of the four listed on the sheet were, but let Soren & Maebh (with Nils’ help) find them by using the machines at the Visitor Center.

ge·o·cach·ing

[jee-oh-kash-ing]
noun
the outdoor sport or game of searching for hidden objects by using Global Positioning System
(GPS) coordinates posted on the Internet.


Once the device lead us to the area, there were a few “clues” to help us locate the exacts spot where we had to find the hidden item.  When found, they opened it and signed the log book and left a penny from the USA.

While you are supposed to stick to the trails, we did venture off one where we found a few huge dens which clearly took someone a long time to build.


We walked and walked and walked…

While Nils searched the logs near the Temple for the last one (which was missing), the kids played “Temple Ice Hockey”.


Soren had a great time doing it, and we’ll definitely try doing it again soon as there are a lot around North Norfolk.  We’re going to try Orienteering at the park next.
