Geocache Description:


"Wait a minute, wait a minute Doc, are you telling me, you built a time machine.....out of a Delorean?"

A high-school student in 1985, befriends an eccentric scientist, who's working on a time machine, and finds himself sent back to 1955.

After accidentally interfering in the budding romance of his parents, he must figure out a way to get them back together or he will never be born.

Yes, Back To The Future fans, this is a Wherigo based on my favourite film.  We are going to revisit some of the most iconic moments and venues from the film, just substituting them for their present day versions here in Leicester. What could possibly go wrong? Circular walk around the city leading to a physical container at the end. Our usual FTF prize inside.

This is a Wherigo cache, the starting point does not have a physical cache, it's the starting point of your journey.


To find it, you must download a cartridge to a compatible device with the correct Wherigo software (it's free). Download the Wherigo cartridge here

This will take you on a circular walk around Leicester, which should take around 2 hours to complete.  The cartridge should auto save after each stage, so you do not have to start all over again from the beginning if you have a problem. This Wherigo has been tested a number of times on an Iphone 7 without any issues.

You will have to visit many locations and answer a question to move on, for real fans, why not get the answer wrong sometimes and see who you meet! Then finally, you will receive the information to go and find the cache, there is no need to keep a list of the answers, as you will be given the cache location at the end.

The route is easy going and is suitable for everybody, but you will need to cross some busy roads at times, so please use the proper crossings and keep an eye on your junior cachers. As with all urban caches, please watch out for muggles as you retrieve the cache at the end.
