Eclectic Penguin: Sad to let this one go as it was Wales' first Wherigo, as far as I understand. A combination of the cartridge being incompatible with modern third party players and the fact that the final hiding location is not the same now as it was when hidden (along with a distinct possibility of the cache now being missing) let me to let it go.

If at some stage I may get round to re-writing/fixing the cartridge I may either unarchive or re-publish this but for now, I guess it has to go.

How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

In order to get the coordinates for this cache, you will need to complete a WHEREiGO cartdridge. Once coordinates are provided, the going is along a public footpath, which can get a bit muddy apart from the last 10m (and can be exceptionally muddy after heavy rain fall!).

Historical Ammanford is an interactive tour around the town of Ammanford introducing you to buildings and structures that are/were important to the town and hopefully filling you in on a little local history at the same time.

In order to participate, you will need to:
1. Have GPS equipment capable of running WHEREiGO
2. Have downloaded the appropriate cartrige from here
3. Have an hour or so of time on your hands to spend some time visiting some historic locations arround the town of Ammanford.

The activity is broken down into 3 distinct sections- and you don't need to do all at once providing you save the game and come back another day.

Section 1 & 2 can easily be done on foot from a central location. Section 3 can still be done on foot, but maybe you'd like to drive to some of the locations if you can as the locations are a little more spaced out for this activity.

I estimate that it's possible to complete in 2 hours if a car is employed to jump between locations in section 3.

WARNING: Once you've completed the cartridge, a saved completed cartridge should always display the geocache's coordinates on re-loading should you lose the coordinates the first time they were presented. However, on some third party players (including the iPhone) this doesn't happen - write down the coordinates as soon as they are presented otherwise you may well have to do part or all of the wehereigo again.
