This cache is a clip lock box in a camouflage bag with a pencil and a log. The cache is hidden in the grounds of Monksthorpe Chapel which is on the Gunby Hall and Gardens Estate. The chapel was built in 1701 in remote farmland in the style of a barn to hide it from prying eyes at a time of religious dissent and persecution. Outside the chapel is a rare open air baptistry. There is access to the exterior at all times.
This geocache is hidden in National Trust grounds if you wish to visit the property you can between 11:00 and 17:00.
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!
