Geocache Description:

Puzzle Cache with a difference, hence the Difficulty rating.

You will need to visit the rest of the series to be able to solve the location.
Terrain muddy in winter, with lots of Elizabethan pollution around.

Bonus Cache for my Blackadder 2 series of caches. The co-ords are for a place where you can park the old Geo wagon and is quiet close to where the series kicks off.

Back in the Mid 80s a young Richard Curtis and Rowan Atkinson kicked off a TV comedy series called Blackadder set in the early Middle-Ages and filmed on location. It was warmly received at first, but the viewing figures where such that the BBC exec (re -accountants) where negative on doing a follow up series.

However Richard Curtis and Rowan Atkinson managed to rope a young Ben Elton into the scripting team, and along with a scaled down production cost (i.e. limiting the series to inside the studio) managed to persuade the BBC that another series was warrented. The rest they say is History, or rather History of a more dubious nature.

Many parts of the episodes have passed into folk lore, and who could forget such gems as "Tall, blond. Goes like the privy door when the plague is town?", "Is it true! I hold in my hands, a nugget of purest green"? "Flash by name, flash by nature". Or Baldric's assertation that two beans, plus two beans was a small casserole. To this day the British Army now regularly calls its regimental goats, Baldric, a high honour indeed.

The assembled cast, when asked, have fond memories of the production of the second series, and often recall that rehersal was often difficult due to the amount of laughter generated by the script.

The original contents of the cache are:
a nugget of Pure Green - no only joking.
TB - Longest Drive
A Tennis Ball,
TFT Badge,
Smilie Badge,
Soft cuddly Bear.
Fake Blood,
Card Game,
Meccano Set (for the big kids out there),
Metal Water bottle,
Candle.

The Cache was an exceptionally large (10"x33"x6"), but has been muggled, much to my dis-appointment. And is now a micro (for the moment - i'm still trying to obtain a cache of the same size and dimensions).

It can be found N51.D(A+D).(A+D)(C+F)A by E000.BE.D(C-(B+D))(E+F)
