Welcome to OPENCACHE.uk

Geocaching is an outdoor sport or activity in which cachers use a GPS receiver to find a "treasure" hidden by other participants. Caches are watertight containers containing items for exchange (mostly inexpensive trinkets) and a logbook in which the finder records their discovery of the cache. The coordinates of the cache's location are stored in online databases such as opencache.uk, along with the description and instructions necessary to find it.

First, may we wish all users of the site a Happy Christmas and New Year. The new site has settled down now, and we seem to have overcome a few minor teething troubles. Thanks to all those who have set caches, and those who have looked for them. It is a long time since we have had elections for the opencache.uk committee, and we propose to put this in motion in the new year.

Overall number of caches: 898 active caches: 537 | Finds: 2,887 | Number of users: 469

 Cache of month

Cache The Tor In The Trees hidden by Gribben
A cache near a central Dartmoor tor
United Kingdom (UK) > Devon

It was very warm and I wasn't rally dressed for the walk up but I took a few minutes at the trig to cool down and take in the great views from up there today.Some believe this tor to be the center of Dartmoor and with the 360° views today, it certainly felt like I was sat in the middle of the moor.
Belliver Trig
View from the trig today
No problem finding the cache, I didn't even turn the GPSr on, I tried to find it from memory and just about managed it.
Despite the struggle due to the heat I enjoyed my visit today, thank you.
