With a population as big as Scotland's and an area half the size of Belgium, Yorkshire is almost a country in itself. It has its own flag, its own dialect and its own celebration, Yorkshire Day (1st August). While local folk are proud to be Englsh, they're even prouder to be natives of 'God's Own County'.

What makes Yorkshire special?

First, there's the landscape - with its brooding moors and green dales rolling down to a dramatic coastline, Yorkshire has some of Britain's finest scenery.

Second, there's the sheer breadth of history - every facet of the British experience is represented here, from Roman times to the 20th century.

But Yorkshire's greatest appeal lies in its people. Industrious and opinionated, they have a wry wit and shrewd friendliness. Stay here for a while and you'll come away believing, like the locals, that God is indeed from Yorkshire.

What is Geocaching?

     
     
Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location.
