Geocache Description:

A webcam cache, overlooking Abington Square, Northampton.

I couldn't find any local webcam caches to visit - so I decided to create one!

This is a BBC webcam, so I'm hoping it will prove reliable. Get a friend to visit BBC Northamptonshire to record your evidence. Try to hold your GPS above your head like I'm doing in the example photo. The camera only updates once every 5 minutes, so you may have to stand there looking stupid for quite a while (and I speak from experience!)

Log entries without a webcam photo will be deleted.

The BBC are currently undergoing an office move, and so the camera is updating only sporadically. I have therefore had to temporarily disable the cache until the camera is re-positioned. Please DO NOT try to log the cache (e.g. by using photos taken nearby) during this period, as it may result in the cache being archived. Any such logs will be deleted. My apologies to anyone attended the nearby Halloween Mega event this weekend - but I have to abide by Groundspeak rules. Sorry.

This cache was featured in The Podcache Show - Episode Six. Thanks guys!
