Saddleworth News has a fun way to see your area with a fresh eye. Using hand-held GPS/Sat Nav units or even a smartphone, you can search for hidden treasures in rural and urban locations.

These treasures or ‘caches’ range from tiny containers the size of your thumbnail to the size of a bucket – but be warned some are very hard to find. Saddleworth News has provided a helpful map of geocaches in the area showing the vast numbers of geocaches out there:
