This is one of four Blue level caches in the Quest
This means that the above co-ordinates ARE NOT CORRECT but suggest a possible parking place.
To find this cache you must first find the components of Steel...
GCHJMN - Carbon
...which gives you the North co-ordinates
GCHJMP - Iron
...which gives you the West co-ordinates
This cache also contains the North co-ordinates to GCHJN2 - Mercury
>>General guidelines for the Alchemy Quest...
> Inside each cache (except for Gold) are half the co-ordinates to another one.
> They are printed on a laminated sheet of paper and written on the front of the log book.
> DO NOT REMOVE THIS PIECE OF PAPER!
> Therefore copy on to paper, type into your GPS or take a picture of these co-ordinates as you'll need them if you want to do the whole quest.
> DO NOT over-cram the pots full of stuff! I have purposely not put much in the caches to begin with as I'm running out of goodies and people have been very generous with my other caches! I'd rather you not leave anything than the cache leak.
> Small travel bugs can be placed in the lesser caches and larger ones in Gold (which is an ammo box).
> DO NOT give the co-ordinates you have found to other cachers as it defeats the point of the quest.
> It may be best to take your own pen or pencil to sign the log book in case the one left freezes up.
> Please don't put the pots on their sides or upside-down as there is a higher chance of water getting in.
The Abbey House you will see (the building overgrown and derelict) was built in 1820 and was destroyed during the second world war when it was occupied by Dutch soldiers.
Steel (like all the other caches (except for Gold)) is a Flare Can.
> There are multiple ways to get to this cache as the link below will show you.
> Map - it may be useful to print this out.
> The arrow shown on this map is roughly where the general area co-ordinates given above relate to and where we parked when we placed the cache. You will find parking is very difficult in many places as the lanes are quite narrow.
!> If you take a route which leads you through the Ranton Abbey Estate, keep to the footpaths and keep dogs on a lead.
> Only when you are a few feet from the cache will you have to go off the footpath. When this cache was placed in February, no bushwacking was required!
> Some paths will be *extremely muddy* after heavy rain! You have been warned!
> Finally, good luck and don't forget to bring your camera as you can get some great shots of the Abbey.
P.S. Feel free to post pictures and a detailed log but try and avoid spoilers. Thanks!
Due to the cache being relocated on 29/4/10, the numbers you will have received from the base level caches have changed slightly. To resolve this:
Add 2 from the North co-ordinates from ~Carbon~
Add 6 from the West co-ordinates from ~Iron~
