National Trust to launch digital treasure hunt

More people may be tempted to strap on their hiking boots and head off into the great British countryside after hearing of a new digital treasure hunt to be launched by the National Trust.

The organisation has collaborated with GPS company Garmin to create Geocaching, an event due to be held at more than 40 National Trust areas throughout the UK, with taster sessions to be hosted over the next few months.

Senior product manager for fitness and outdoor with Garmin Andrew Silver explained that the project is a good way for people to enjoy some fresh air and "discover hidden places".

"At National Trust places this summer, you can have fun and get rewards, but also learn useful techniques such as how to read maps and co-ordinates," he remarked.

Jack Neill-Hall, spokesman for the Campaign to Protect Rural England, recently described the UK's countryside as a wonderful place in which to live, citing benefits such as cleaner air, tranquillity and a sense of community.ADNFCR-2803-ID-800524162-ADNFCR
