Geocache Description:

The 3 new caches added to the series of geocaches at National Trust Tyntesfield in 2009 are a way for people to explore and engage with this beautiful estate. Focusing a little more on built structures, these geocaches are all located on public rights of way and so are accessible year round without charge.

The geocaches at National Trust Tyntesfield are a new way for people to explore and engage with this beautiful estate.
Focusing on built structures, the geocaches are all located on public rights of way and so are accessible year round without charge.
Each geocache contains a log book for you to leave your name and comments, as well as information on the each location and a family-friendly activity to do. All geocaches are less than 5m from the public footpaths. Some may be camouflaged with twigs, leaves or small stones, so please replace this cover after you have finished with the geocache.
*Please note that the Activity Cards and Information Cards belong to this Geocache and should not be removed. There may be other items that are left by fellow geocachers to be exchanged (e.g. small toys, usb cables) or moved on (geocache coins / travel bugs). As the geocaches are quite large (lunch box size) they are suitable for larger travel bugs*
Things to be aware of when setting out to find our geocaches:
1. The public footpaths on the estate can be uneven, muddy and slippery in wet weather. Wellies or walking boots are recommended!
2. As with any woodland area, there are lots of roots and other trip hazards about – so watch where you put your feet. Please avoid woodland areas in high winds.
3. Keep an eye on young children as there are slopes and drop-offs close to the footpaths. There are also some sections of barbed wire along the fence line.
4. Please keep an eye out for stinging nettles, brambles and holly (for your own comfort!) and tread carefully to avoid trampling the woodland plants (e.g. bluebells in spring).
5. Some geocaches are located close to estate boundary walls, which are in a poor state of repair. Please note that no geocaches are hidden in the walls themselves and please do not try and climb on the walls as they may collapse. 6. Some of the footpaths pass through fields, which at some times of year have livestock in them (sheep / young cows). Please close all gates behind you!
7. Parking is only available within the Tyntesfield estate when we are open to the public - everyday apart from Christmas Day. Some local parking is available (e.g. New Battleaxes Pub, Wraxall or on Wraxall Hill) but may be limited, especially on weekends.
Access Information: The public footpaths are very uneven in places and may be slippery. There are also some moderate slopes and several stiles along the route.
Good luck and be sure to let us know what you think in the log-books or at www.geocaching.com
