Despite the recent excitement with the bomb scare in Wetherby this week, we decided not to let it put us off urban caching and headed straight to London this Saturday for some urban hides.
Caching in Greenwich
We were particularly attracted to Greenwich as there were 3 virtuals, a good handful of traditionals and a wherigo in the vicinity to keep us busy for the morning. We started with the virtual Whisky Galore at the Cutty Sark which unfortunately wasn’t a very exciting virtual as the ship is all boarded up whilst they are doing work to restore it after it caught fire in 2007. The ship is costing millions to restore so should look fabulous once they have finished. It’s nice that the CO has been able to modify the virtual to keep it alive during the work though.
Next it was on to Maritime Greenwich where we started our Wherigo and the Greenwich Hemispheric Exploration virtual. At the start we saw 13 famous travellers carved into the building. A very impressive addition to the building.
