(GorgonVaktmester cache #20)

Bratsberg Teglverk ble etablert i 1895 på Bratsberg, rett nedenfor Kapittelberget. I første del av 1900-årene var det en av de største bedriftene i Skiensdistriktet. I 1947 bestod teglverksbransjen i Norge av hele 56 bedrifter og konkurransen var hard. I årene som fulgte ble det sakte med sikkert færre og færre bedrifter. Kun de sterkeste overlevde. På Bratsberg Teglverk så man at teknologien var i ferd med å gå i fra dem så de valgte da å legge ned fabrikken på Bratsberg, og flyttet i 1957-58 hele produksjonen til Lunde. Bratsberg teglverk er i dag Norges eneste teglverk.

Bratsberg teglverk ca. 1900. Man kan se Kapittelberget øverst til venstre.

Oppgaven som du må løse for å finne cachen får du fra en oppfinnsom murer. Han skulle sette opp en lagerbygning i mur, og for å live opp bygget som skulle oppføres i grå mursten laget han felter med røde mursteiner i to nyanser på de to veggene som ikke hadde vinduer (østsiden og nordsiden av bygget). De fleste som ser dette ser bare et ustrukturert mønster av røde murstein, men gode mystery-cache løsere ser noe helt annet. De ser at hver av de to røde feltene representerer koordinater...

Klarer du å finne koordinatene?? I så fall kan du finne cachen også!

Lykke til!

Short version in english:

"Bratsberg Teglverk" (Bratsberg brickworks) was established in 1895 at Bratsberg, just below "Kapittelberget". In the first part of the 1900's it was one of the largest companies in the Skien district. In 1947 the brickworks industry in Norway counted 56 firms and the competition was hard. In the years that followed, it slowly became fewer and fewer companies. Only the strongest survived. Bratsberg Teglverk realized that technology was leaving them behind so they decided to close down the factory in Bratsberg, and moved in 1957-58 the production to Lunde. Today Bratsberg Teglverk in Lunde is Norway's only

The puzzle you have to solve to find the cache, is given to you by a creative bricklayer. He had been hiret set up a warehouse made by bricks, and to liven up the building created to fields with red bricks in two shades on the two walls that had no windows (east and north side of the building). Most people who see it can't see anything other than two unstructured patterns of red brick, but the great mystery cache-solvers see something completely different. They can see that each of the two red fields represents coordinates...

The first figure above represents a section of the north wall, and the last figure represents a section of the east wall.

Can you find the coordinates? If so, then you can find the cache!

Good luck!
