Geocache Description:

Solve the cipher or solve the maze - your choice!

Either way you first need to walk Dorking Heritage Trail 2 and answer these questions. You have the options of:-
  1. Just winging it from the co-ordinates given.
  2. Picking up a free leaflet from the Dorking Halls (N51 14.089 W000 19.509).
  3. Visiting http://www.visitdorking.com/explore/walks-and-trails/the-thames-link/ for further information, guide and map.

This cache can usefully be combined with Dorking Heritage Trail 1 (AA-08) as you can collect all the required information for both caches in a single visit. Aditionally, don't forget Church Micro 134...Dorking St. Martins which just a few yards away.

Note: Having collected all the answers, it is likely that you will need to return home to convert them into co-ordinates. The technologically sophisticated may be able to manage it in the field.

Choice 1 - The Cipher

Concatenate together all your answers (no blanks) excluding the answer to question 8. Where any answer contains one or more numerics, convert as follows: 0=zero, 1=one, 2=two and so on up to 9=nine. You now have the key for the below Vigenere cipher:-

zepzqdepemlgqrxeokleuhtzvwwtnn:tnkaqipxkkytaagansewpnr
anawkqzyyhsdpvijfkarosbwi:yijggbfqkgqhegfhagkvkckrhpps
You should assume N51 and W000.

Choice 2 - The Maze

Note: The below link leads to a web page on my personal website containing a java applet (same as for all my previous puzzle caches). For this to work you need to have the java runtime environment (JRE) installed on your computer (which it usually is by default). If you have any concerns about running java applications on your computer then you should probably stick with trying to solve the cipher.

Still with me? OK, go to:-

See the Instructions link to learn how to navigate the maze. You might also consider looking at the 'Tip' link.

Either choice

The container is at the bottom end of the 'small' size and has space only for tiny swaps and geocoins. You are unlikely to fit in a travel bug unless it consists or little more than the dogtag. There is no pen so please bring your own writing implement with you.
