If you're interested in challenges/locationless caches, these might be worth a look (published for the recent EAG event):
Lesser Trefoil - To claim this LC, you must find a chapel on a bridge, and incorporate it into a cache with a physical container. This LC can be claimed only once per county, and you must link back to this LC in your cache description.
There are only four bridges which incorporate a chapel still standing in the UK, one of which is just down the road from the Gallant Soldiers and Poppies event, in St Ives. If you can link a building on a bridge to a former chapel, this is acceptable, so long as you can provide the history. (For example, within the UK, I would also accept a cache which incorporates a town lock up, built in the 18th century on foundations which originally supported a chapel. That one is in Bradford-on-Avon.)
There is no requirement to place the cache at the chapel, as this may not be possible. However, in order to log the cache as found, you must incorporate the chapel, so that someone should have to have visited this. (That is, if not using the chapel as the cache location, you might use it as a waypoint. That waypoint might be physical or virtual. For example, taking a photo at the chapel; or using information already available there for calculations for the final cache, or next waypoint.)
Badman - To claim this LC, you must find a village lock-up - a small building historically used for the temporary detention of people until they could be removed to a town (or, as was often the case, until they sobered up overnight). As an example, you could use the same lock-up as mentioned above, in Bradford-on-Avon. Please identify which village the lock-up is in, and provide co-ordinates. Only one find per lock-up please!
Please have a photo taken of you at the lock-up, and ensure you look either as criminal or as drunk as possible. Facial expression, pose and clothing should all in some way help you achieve this, and one final prop will round things off nicely. You must be wearing handcuffs! (No, I'm not kidding - handcuffs are compulsory to log this cache!)
Himalayan Balsam - To claim this LC, you must find the highest point of a county, and incorporate it into a cache with a physical container. The county can be either historic (eg the historic county of Huntingdonshire) or modern (eg the modern county of Cambridgeshire). This LC can be claimed only once per county, and you must link back to this LC in your cache description.
There is no requirement to place the cache at the highest point, as this may not be possible. However, in order to log the cache as found, you must incorporate the highest point, so that someone should have to have visited this. (That is, if not using the highest point as the cache location, you might use it as a waypoint. That waypoint might be physical or virtual. For example, taking a photo at the point; or using information already available at the point for calculations for the final cache, or next waypoint.)
Yellow Daisy - The word “daisy” comes from two Saxon words (daeyes and eayes together make day’s eye). To claim this LC, you must find a Saxon ring village, and incorporate it into a cache with a physical container. For those outside Europe, a Saxon ring village may be hard to find, so where Saxons did not settle, any ring village may suffice!
A ring village is a settlement made by clearing a stretch of woodland and surrounding the clearing by a road and fence to keep out wild animals. The ring need not be circular - indeed the ring village of Woodhurst lies "round" what is roughly an oblong formed by two roads.
This LC can be claimed more than once per ring village, and you must link back to this LC in your cache description. There is no requirement to place the cache in the village, so long as it is nearby.
