All email to be entitled: Geocaching
Dave Edwards (The Wombles)
Geocaches may be placed on Countryside sides in accordance with the following arrangements.
Caches may be placed at the 23 countryside locations specified on http://www.lancashire.gov.uk/environment/countryside/sites/index.asp
Preston Junction Local Nature Reserve
Withnell Fold LNR
Clougha Access Area
Fairsnape, Saddle and Wolf Fell
In addition, permission from the relevant landowner will be necessary for Lancashire Coastal Way, Ribble Way and Bronte Way which are largely not owned by LCC.
A number of these sites are car parks and it is expected that only a micro cache eg 35mm canister would be appropriate at most of these locations.
* Whilst no further geocaches are permitted at Beacon Fell as of 22/5/05, it is recognised that existing caches are in place at this location. Retrospective permission is likely for these caches provided that these requirements followed, including provision of location details specified below.
Caches may be placed at the specified locations and then a map and/or directions are to be emailed to the Head Ranger as above. It may be necessary for caches to be subsequently moved if it is found that the cache has been placed somewhere inappropriate. Please note that emailed details must be standalone and not rely on internet links since internet access may not be available.
Some of these locations have hazardous areas such as cliff drops and therefore all signage must be strictly observed.
All caches are to follow the GAGB guidelines as rules including contact information on the outside of the cache.
