Favourite geocaches: Derbyshire

Awarding our Geocaching favourite points: Where? Which? Why?

Sometimes we award favourite points for the memories attached to finding a cache, other times it’s for the creativity of the containers, and then there’s also the points for location…for taking us to a different place that we wouldn’t have otherwise known about. 🙂

A special mention has to be given to the fiendish puzzle caches which we award favourite points to for the time and effort that goes into putting them together – especially if there’s a great container at the end!!

Please let me know if there are any great caches that we should check out in your area as this list is by no means extensive – and we’re always up for a road trip!

By the babbling brook – GC2C943 by TeamMoradim *Found on: 28/12/13*

Difficulty 2 – Terrain 2.5

Cache Type: Traditional

On a lovely day out around Eyam with my Mum and Bro we found some really great caches but this cache was the highlight of the day.

The ground was wet underfoot and the cache was hidden down a very steep and muddy bank. Unsure if we were all going to make it MrBizkitz and I opted to go down whilst my Mum and Bro stayed up the top. It was probably a wise decision as there was a lot of slipping and sliding going on before MrB and I finally reached the bottom.

We found ourselves in a really picturesque spot next to a lovely babbling brook (hence the cache name) but the silence was disturbed by a remote control car that was whizzing around, driven by a father and his son. It certainly made us jump the first time we heard it!

Overall a great cache in a great spot, if you don’t mind sliding around in the mud!
