News & New Caches 40

We have 3 new Adventure Labs in our area:

Bardsey Island South created by coronasv
Bardsey Island North created by fairyspan

Bardsey Island is a remote and magical place. It is well worth the effort to get there with only one existing traditional cache and now SSSI it needs some labs to put this amazing place back on the caching map. The tiny Island of 20,000 graves is full of history, seals, sheep and just 4 all year round humans! Bardsey is at the end of the North Wales Pilgrims route, and one of the holiest places in Britain famed for the 20,000 graves of saints. Locals say that if you dig anywhere on the island, you’ll hit a body. A short 20 minute ferry ride for an amazing 4 hours of history, wildlife, and crystal clear waters.

PLEASE NOTE: Mobile phone signal on Bardsey is non existent so you will need to prepare before you set off! The distance is set so that you will be able to open the stages before you set off and can log the answers once you return to the mainland.

Bardsey Island Ferry is currently £45 per adult £25 per child

International Geocaching Day 20th August, 2022

As part of International Geocaching Day celebrations geocaching HQ have set the geocaching community a challenge, to break the record for most cachers to log a find in a day. The current record is 126,833 cachers which was set way back on August 11, 2013. To join the challenge and be counted, log a ‘Found It’ log on a geocache, complete an Adventure Lab location or post an ‘Attended’ log for an event taking place on 20th August. If a new record is set a souvenir will be awarded to everyone who took part in creating the new record.
