How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
The cache is a regular 4 clip click lock box in a camo bag. This cache is one of a series of caches around the village of Norbury.
Each cache can be discovered as a drive by as they are all near to roads, or they can be done as part of the Millennium Boulder Trail walk which is about 7 miles. None of the caches is very far from each boulder. The Boulder Trail is a pleasant walk over fields, tracks, some lanes and a canal towpath.
The Millennium Boulder Trail was started by the Norbury Local History Group to celebrate the year AD 2000.
In Norbury and the surrounding areas, glacial boulders can be found. Some of these boulders have been rescued, and been re-sited.
Five of these have been erected, one in each of the five settlements that make up the Parish of Norbury. Each boulder is inscribed with its number and the letters MM, and carries a bronze plaque.
If you decide on the walk, parking is available at the Norbury Village Hall.
The full list of caches in the series is:
1) Millennium Boulder Trail Boulder I – Norbury, OS 783235
2) Millennium Boulder Trail Boulder II – Oulton, OS 786224
3) Millennium Boulder Trail Boulder III – Norbury Junction, OS 794228

Boulder IV, at Loynton stands at the junction of The Street and Grub Street and was uncovered when some new piggeries were being constructed at Park Lane Farm, High Offley. It was hauled out with great difficulty and dumped at the end of a farm track. From there it was retrieved and sited here at Grub Street.
If not doing the whole walk, it’s worth a little walk to the Loynton Nature Reserve as it is a pretty little area especially around the Loynton Moss.
