If you are already a geocacher, you will find that there are caches at a number of our Local Geological Sites. If not, then why not try it? Log onto www.geocaching.com where you’ll find a short video explaining all about this absorbing activity. At some sites there is a box to find, at others there are geological questions to answer; the latter are called Earthcaches. 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.

The same sentiment for the UK..and probably better to do it before we have a major disaster like the fires of Australia https://t.co/qvAjrJX8j2

Butterfly theatre underway! Can’t wait to plant it up with borage, cosmos, lavender, rudbeckia, catmint, foxgloves, delphiniums, aquilegia, dwarf buddliea and other pollinator favourites 🦋🌼🐝 Then I shall sit in the middle and probably never get any work done ever again https://t.co/bG11VpvVrG
