Finding a geocache after a long search can feel like there’s a “light at the end of the tunnel.” This saying becomes quite literal when it comes to this week’s Geocache of the Week — Cathedral Cavern Cache, GC2CQB7.

In the Lake District of North West England lies the valley of Little Langdale which, for the past several hundred years, was mined and quarried extensively for copper and slate. One of the disused inter-linked tunnel systems, Cathedral Quarries, is now open to the public and makes for a magical cache outing.

Cache In Trash Out® (CITO) is an environmental initiative supported by the geocaching community. Since 2002, CITO Events help preserve the natural beauty of cache-friendly spaces. In that time, more than 363,000 people have volunteered at 18,000 events.

Lots of cachers think of CITO as a chance to pick up trash—which it definitely is. But it’s also a chance to preserve the integrity of cache-friendly places in other ways!

Hosted by cache owner The Wombles, Wombling free – Chalking the Horse brings cachers together to restore a prehistoric chalked horse figure in Uffington. While it isn’t unusual for CITOs to be limited to one occurrence, this particular CITO recurs twice annually. This means that, if you’re in the UK, you have multiple opportunities to participate—making it a perfect candidate for our Geocache of the Week!
