A project to see an Adventure Trail and a Geocache Trail around the village of Croston in West Lancashire will be launched on Thursday 23rd February, when a colourful piece of artwork will be unveiled on the cycle shelter at the station.

What is a Geocaching? Wikipedia describes Geocaching as an outdoor recreational activity, in which participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or mobile device and other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers, called “geocaches” or “caches”, at specific locations marked by coordinates all over the world.
There is an official body www.geocaching.com where you can register and record your geocaching successes.
