If you are unfamiliar with the game of Geocaching, let me tell you a little about how it works. Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location. There are currently over a dozen "cache types" in geocaching, with each cache type being a different variation of the game.
At its simplest level, geocaching requires these eight steps:
There are many other levels to the game.

This is what first finders Izzy and the Lizard King said about their trip to Weobley.
”We were keeping our eye on this one in the hope that we would be able to attempt an FTF for February. The details on the cache listing and accompanying trail map attracted our attention as it looked like a favourite sort of cache experience for us.
Our journey of forty plus miles was mostly through rain, sometimes heavy, but fortunately it stopped as we approached the village. We had noticed "tasters" of black and white buildings on our journey, and we were delighted to discover a village full of such architecture. Even in the dark, we thought the village is very attractive. We attempted to take some photos but most turned out blurred due to lack of light and no tripod. We MUST come again in daylight to take some photos.
We thoroughly enjoyed searching for the plaques and learning about the village. You have certainly put a lot of work into the cache. Thank you - it is very much appreciated.”
