Geocache Description:

This is a replacement cache for our first ever geocache 'Bent Thomas' which was placed in this area until the council pulled out the bushes it was hiding behind, it was then shortly archived. This is the type of multicache we love, the one stage with GZ less than 100 meters away that teaches you something.

To work out the coordinates you will need to go to the listed coords. At those coordinates you will find a big bronze statue of Sir Thomas Bent and a smaller monument dedicated to Mrs Bent to the right of it with a water bubbler in the middle. From the statue of Tommy Bent find;
- Year of birth = 1abc
- Year of death = 1def
- Years he was premiere of Victoria = 19gh - 190i
- The third word along on the sixth line, how many letters? - j

And on the smaller plaque dedicated to Mrs Bent find;
- The year this plaque was placed - 19kl

PLEASE NOTE: the lowercase letters represent different numbers to the uppercase.

Now that you have those numbers do these sums to work out the uppercase letters:

A = j - h
B = d - f + b
C = k - a + j
D = f - b
E = g + e
F = c - h
G = b + b
H = i - f

S 37° 5A.BCD E 145 0E.FGH

The cache is a small 400mL Sistema clip top container holding a few swaps, a log and a pencil. Good luck and happy caching!
