Start Date


Renewal Date



We now have a verbal agreement in place from the Environment Department and The Jersey National Trust to place caches on land administered by them. Both of them have agreed that the GAGB guidelines are very well written and are happy to have caches placed on their lands which adhere to the guidelines stated without permission being required.

As long as the GAGB guidelines are adhered to and cache placement is mindful of the SSIs and other fragile areas they dont have any other concerns and welcome the fact that we are advertising their land for people to come and enjoy and see.
Caches may be placed in areas of Dolmens and standing stones as long as the containers are not in or on them.

The only area where geocaching containers are NOT permitted is St Ouens pond and Grouville Marsh.

A map overlay (.kml) showing St Ouens pond and Grouville Marsh areas can be downloaded here.

The Jersey New Water Works Company have also agreed to allow caches on their land of Queens Valley and Val de la Mare Reservoir but the manager must be contacted first and a site visit arranged to agree a location before placement. Contact Derek Morris at JNWWco on 01534 707236.

A map overlay (.kml) showing Queens Valley and Val de la Mare Reservoir can be downloaded here.

The map overlays can be downloaded and opened in Google Earth which is a free download for a PC and also as apps for Apple and Android. (N.B. These maps do not form part of any legal representation of land ownership and are created simply as a guide to areas for the purposes of placing a geocache container or marking an area where these are not permitted).
