Favourite geocaches: Northumberland

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!


WALLTOWN QUARRY – GCK29D by THE SMILEYS *Found on: 18/07/14*

Difficulty 1 – Terrain 1.5

Cache Type: Traditional

This cache is part of a circular walk which takes you around Hadrian’s Wall :) Unfortunately we didn’t get time to take any of the walk in as we were on a bit of a schedule and shouldn’t really have been there in the first place! We parked in the nearby car park which was a bit steep at £4 when we were only there for about 40 mins, but there were quite a few people out and about doing maintenance work so we didn’t mind paying out as we know that the money is obviously been spent in the right places 😉

It’s actually a really nice spot, and a lovely drive…we approached from somewhere near Gretna on our way over to Newcastle and the views are stunning. Definitely worth popping over to if you’re in the area, there’s also the Roman Army Museum just down the road where you could buy a sword to fend off the muggles on your route 😉
