Still no progress, unfortunately…
Tried once again to list my cache which is outside the range, providing all the details and photos relevant to the situation:
“Thank you for your patience while we investigated the land use issues with this area. Because of the delicate nature of the negotiations between the geocaching community and the Ministry of Defense, we simply cannot publish a geocache that is not certain on all maps to be outside of the military property. We are denying your appeal and ask that you relocate your cache farther away where there will be no controversy about the property where it is located. I will notify your reviewer so he knows the outcome of your appeal. Good luck with your new location.”
Certain on ALL maps?? I provided the military maps for them but obviously a guess-work line drawn on google maps by a reviewer doesn’t correlate to this!
Also can’t understand the “controversy” comment, why would there be controversy?
Can’t believe how long this saga has rumbled on for…I can imagine that there is in fact no “negotiations” and that this ban is now permenant.October 18, 2013 at 8:38 am #2465Dartmoor DaveKeymaster
clownpunchers, who did you receive this from?
Have you appealed to Groundspeak in the States or is this still within the UK reviewers?October 18, 2013 at 5:20 pm #2466
I was given an email address with appeals@ at the front so I assume the Americans.March 3, 2014 at 10:19 am #2860BrentorboxerParticipant
What’s happening about geocaching on the Dartmoor ranges? Has this just been swept under the carpet by the reviewers in the hope it would go away?March 3, 2014 at 10:24 am #2861Dartmoor DaveKeymaster
To be honest I have been too busy to chase it up recently. Every time I tried to find out something I just hit a brick wall as did everybody else. Interesting that we have not been asked to remove our caches from Willsworthy and they have not been archived.
I will see what I can find out in the near future.March 3, 2014 at 4:13 pm #2862JaughanParticipant
It’s pretty much six months since this cache was archived, directly by Seattle staff.
So as nothing has happened in the intervening period, it appears that the whole initiative may be forgotten.
Interestingly, this multi required various counts of visible objects to be made whilst walking on a public footpath across a very small block of military land and then finding the final stage which was on the very tip of a cliff promontary. Technically, I believe the final stage was still on MOD land but the biggest hazard was not unexploded ordnance but nudists!April 8, 2014 at 4:57 pm #2963
Unfortunately I can’t see the restrictions ever being lifted. I was out on the North Moor today and thinking that it is such a shame that no new caches can be places in such a huge and beautiful area for no reason, I know I am in the minority but I tend to only enjoy caching on the moor and this limits it somewhat!
I placed a new cache today out near Steeperton Tor, if it doesn’t get listed (which it won’t) I might try Open Caching and see if that’s an option. Really, we need our own “catalogue” like the letterboxers, but this would be so much effort to set up and benefit so few people. Just wish the reviewers would see sense!!

I’ve listed three North Moor caches on opencaching now that aren’t on geocaching.com: Ockerton Court, Queen Of The Moor (near Fur Tor) and OP 17 (near Steeperton Tor). I think I may look to carry on doing it this way until the “ban” is lifted…
