How Geocaching Works

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

Geocache Description:

A 40 litre box with books for exchange.

This box is hidden on a rarely used part of Shalford Common. Due to trees, the coordinates may be a little off, but Google earth agrees.

Start from the "Clifford House" tombstone. Be very careful of the busy road, especially on the way back. Access involves ditch leaping and bramble stomping - no sandals or shorts. I expect it will be easy to find as a geocacher's trail is likely to develop.

Feel free to take ONE book for EACH book you place in the box. Please put books in an airtight plastic bag, preferably with the front cover visible, to ensure they stay dry. There are some bags on a roll in the box - if they are running low, please send me an email. Please log what books you take and what you leave.
