    Default National Trust HQ permission granted

    Generic permission from the National Trust HQ

    I am delighted to announce that I have secured generic permission from the National Trust HQ. The agreement sets the principles which apply to geocaching on National Trust land and states:


    • "We welcome geocaching on our land provided caches are sited responsibly"
    • “Permission to site a cache will only be denied where the site is not suitable and in most cases an appropriate alternative will be found.”


    Caches must be placed in accordance with GAGB guidelines.

    Caches must be placed with respect to the sensitive nature of National Trust properties and in such a way to avoid damage eg not placed where a searcher could cause damage through their search.


    In order to place a geocache, individuals should follow the process outlined below. Should your local contact be unaware of geocaching then ask them to access the INTERNAL National Trust Intranet and search for “Guidance Note RAG 10, Geocaching” which describes the agreement.

    1.Cacher visits the potential geocache location and records OS coordinates, description of location via landmarks and “walk-in” description of how to find it.
    2.Cacher contacts the Property direct (if possible) and requests permission
    3.Alternatively, cacher contacts the Regional office (contact details here http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/main/w-global/w-contact_us/w-contact_us-regional_offices.htm) with the name/details of the property where they wish to place a cache and the details of the proposed cache location.
    4.National Trust will advise if cache would be in a suitable location (or if property is suitable for a cache).
    5.Permission will be granted by letter.

    That's really marvellous, Dave, and I know that was an important one to you and you put a great deal of work into it!

    Unfortunately the National Trust for Scotland is a separate organisation so no, this permission doesn't cover Scotland.

    However, it does cover Northern Ireland and Wales, and I am willing to open negotiations with NTS when the dust settles on this one.

    A job well done, Dave!

    What is more, the NT truly deserve the membership renewal fee, that we've recently paid them, for this deed alone.

    Excellent, well done this will surely encourage a few more caches, that's for sure. Not as sure about renewal of the membership though!:wacko::wacko:

    I have only just joined the GAGB, but reading this, I thought I would say that I sent the National Trust a suggestion about promoting the NT by having their own Geocoins. I have not heard anything back from them, but if you have good contacts there, maybe you could mention this idea.

    I think people would buy the geocoins and it would also bring them some publicity and interest, even if the coins were not on NT property.
