Geocache Description:

Hampshire County Council are holding this Geocaching event, just outside Winchester between 10:00am and 4:30pm. There is also an evening BBQ just for the Geocachers!

Hampshire County Council are putting on (with alot of help from geocachers)the world's first public Geocaching event with live remote internet connection on site

Please visit to get the full details.

There will be 12 (yes, that's TWELVE!) caches set for the day for those new to geocaching (with some assistance from some more-experienced cachers).

There will be several geocaching related stalls there too, giving a chance to play with some of the latest new 'toys', or to buy geocaching merchandise!

Local GPS manufacturer, Garmin, have donated *three* GPSr's as prizes for newcomers to the sport, and GeocacheUK have also given a GPSr as a prize.

For the Geocachers who help out, there will be overnight camping on the Friday & Saturday, and a BBQ (bring your own food & booze).

The location given (N 51 03.625, W 001 22.849) is for the public / day-visitor parking.

Parking for the campers is in the camping field which is at N51 03.744, W 001 22.934 (you'll need a permit for these... email THE BRAMBLERS for details)
