At some sites there is a box to find, at others there are geological questions to answer; the latter are called Earthcaches. Click here for more Earthcache information. You need to sign up - and then get out with your GPS or smartphone with the appropriate app installed - and enjoy searching in the countryside.
You might like to start with the Earthcache at Brown Howe Quarry, close to the shore of Coniston Water where there’s an information board explaining the interesting geology there. See article in Earth Heritage magazine page 26.
