Geocache Description:


Different people take to puzzle caches in different ways, so this is another of my efforts to make them attractive to those who love them, those who suffer them and those who hate them. The start of the previous series can be found here

This second series consists of a set of number puzzles, which should keep the solvers happy. However, like last time each gecocheck contains the information required to solve the next one. So in the geocheck for this cache (which should be a very simple puzzle to crack) you will find the information to help you solve the next one in the series. That one in turn contains help for the next one and so on.

If you get stuck, then try clicking on the related web page link above.

To further add to the fun, each geocheck has a simple question in it for you to solve. The answers to these questions will lead you to the final cache.

The coordinates above are for the car park a local pub, which is not the cache location, but a pretty good place to start. They make a pretty walk of about two hours with differing scenery and good views, but you can also do them individually. Some of the paths are narrow with nettles, so don't wear shorts!!

For the coords you have to solve the following puzzle, assuming N51 and W 00 as usual, and ten=zero.

Drummers plus Rings.Rings, Lords, Swans

Ladies plus Geese.French hens, Lords, Maids

The hides are not too tricky and are all near footpaths as this is meant to be a fun series. The GPS is not wonderful, so I have tried to give helpful clues.
