This cache is a clip lock box in a camouflage bag with a pencil and a log. Located in Harrington, which lies at the foot of a steep hill and among a number of mature trees.
Harrington Hall is the original Tudor manor house owned by the Coppledyke family, was rebuilt in 1673 by Vincent Amcotts. It became the home of Sir John Maitland the MP for Horncastle from 1945 to 1964. After a fire in 1991, the Hall was again reconstructed by the current owner, Mr. David Price.
Tennyson often visited the Hall, Somersby being only three miles away. The grounds probably inspired him to write "Come into the garden, Maud." The garden is open on certain days in the Summer.
Down Your Wold is a community heritage project supported by Heritage Lincolnshire and Lincolnshire Wolds Countryside Service.
Explore the heritage of the Lincolnshire Wolds by finding our geocaches. Each geocache has a gift for you to take away inside. The gift will help you understand more about the landscape the geocache is hidden in and also had a fun activity for children to do too!
The Lincolnshire Wolds have been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) meaning that they are nationally important and form part of Britain’s finest countryside.
Rich in past human activity the Lincolnshire Wolds has an abundance of cultural and archaeological heritage, two factors leading to AONB designation. We hope that our geocaches help you to discover more about the hidden heritage all around us and encourage you to love the Lincolnshire Wolds as much as we do!
