⭐ GAGB Featured Geocache Series #8 - Tweedle Dee and Dum ⭐

Our next featured series is Tweedle Dee and Dum, a walk in Staffordshire with 28 caches (plus several existing ones). It includes a nice stretch along the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal. This is a more challenging series, consisting of many creative and disguised caches. The cacher who nominated it reckons this is one of the best new loops in a long time, so add it to your To Do list!

Our next featured series is Alchemy Quest, located in Staffordshire and Shropshire. It has amassed over 300 favourite points. Each cache represents a chemical element or compound, and contains half the coordinates to another cache. By continuing to find the caches and combining the coordinates found within them, it is eventually possible to reach the elusive final, Gold.

GAGB Featured Geocache Series #6 - First 50 Heroes

⭐ GAGB Featured Geocache Series #6 - First 50 Heroes⭐

The First 50 Heroes series celebrates the first fifty volunteers from the Coalville area to take part in the Great War of 1914-18. Each geocache commemorates a real volunteer and describes his activities during the Great War. The photo on this post is from the First 50 exhibition and represents one hero, William Massey. Several caches were published yesterday, on Armistice Day, and there are more to come. The GAGB are working with the project to help them coordinate the series. Please get in touch if you would like to be involved.
