Today was a little different. We're still going out geocaching, and we're discovering plenty of places and interesting local history that we wouldn't have known were we not doing it. We went to a local country park, one we go to quite regularly in the warmer weather to ride our bikes, to find a few caches. We tend to go around the main circuit as it's easier to ride on. The downside of that is we were previously unaware of a great many paths that criss-cross the park.
While out walking today we found a 'metal henge', a lovely garden memorial to a local councillor who apparently did a lot to ensure the former colliery site was restored into something everyone could enjoy.

Keep well, keep warm. Until next time. x
