Geocache Description:

A little nano-type cache secreted at the boundary of Gloucester Park

This cache was featured on C5's "The Gadget Show", although actual location was not revealed.


The building nearby used to be Gloucester's Registry Office.

It was there, many moons ago, Edna waited for her betrothed to arrive. Eventually, she spied him limping down the road as fast as his legs would carry him. (There had been a delay at the florists)

Cachers may notice the blue plaque on the wall. It is not there to commorate Edna's nuptials but to honour the creator of the first vacuum cleaner

British engineer, Hubert Cecil Booth patented a motorized vacuum cleaner on August 30, 1901. Booth's machine took the form of a large, horse-drawn, petrol-driven unit, which was parked outside the building to be cleaned with long hoses being fed through the windows. Booth first demonstrated his vacuuming device in a restaurant that same year and successfully sucked dirt.
