How Geocaching Works

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

Geocache Description:

Small lock n lock. Can take trackables and small swaps. Recommend you wear gloves.

This series is run by FantasticCat (The FTF Greater London #1 cache is GC1N994) and is a continuation of the series that Dorsetgal started in Dorset, after hearing about it how it got established in the US on the Podcacher Podcast. Hopefully in time it will become established nationwide! As Groundspeak has now prohibited the publication of caches which required you to hide another cache as a condition of logging the FTF find, you do NOT have to place another cache as a condition of logging the FTF but it would be nice if you did (particularly for YOU!), so the chain is not broken!
Guidelines for this series are below:

1. FTF'er should place the next cache in the series (in this case, The Curse of the FTF #15!) within 1 month... Otherwise the curse will prevent you from ever getting another FTF again!!! Muhahahahahahahaha!

2. You can only be a FTF for this series once. This spreads the FTF love around, and gives others a chance to play along.

3. Cache can be any type of cache (Puzzle, Multi, etc.), but I do ask that you set it in Greater London (there are 33 London boroughs making up Greater London; Enfield in the North down to Croydon and Bromley in the South, Hillingdon in the West through to Havering in the East).

4. You must include this set of guidelines in your listing for the series. I (FantasticCat) will be happy to answer any questions concerning the guidelines or about the placing of caches to those who have not placed a cache before. By way of clarification, there is no requirement besides the standard signing of the cache log to prevent you from logging this cache when found. Everyone should log their find, and hopefully the FTF person will play along and place another cache, but it is in no way a requirement for logging your find.

This park opened in March 1904 on land that had previously been known first as Broom Farm and then Southfields Farm. It is the only farming land in Fulham that still remains as an open space.
During the First World War land in the park was given over to allotments and in the summer of 1915 it was one of the local training grounds for the three Fulham Brigades of the Royal Field Artillery. For the Second World War the council's own labour force initially dug trenches in the park; subsequently full air-raid shelters were built - the entrance was located where the present cricket pavilion is situated - and some of the park was again converted to allotments.

After the war there were a series of ad hoc and generally unsympathetic alterations and in more recent years the park steadily deteriorated due to vandalism and inadequate maintenance. Intensive campaigning by local residents eventually produced some physical improvements, chiefly the restoration of the perimeter wall and the main approach through the double gates, the complete refurbishment of four of the tennis courts and a clearance of the area between the tennis courts. These are, however, only small steps towards the major restoration that the park requires.

Although there have been numerous alterations, the fundamental structure of the park has never changed and its open nature is one of its strong attractions. It is an important sports park and contains the only public cricket pitch in the borough, which is much used in the summer. The park is a major destination for dog owners and is extremely popular with families with young children, especially the play area.

The park is open daily from 07.30am to dusk.
