Geocache Description:


This cache is a tribute to Worcester Pictorial (visit link)

Start at the given co-ordinates in Town Hall Square & follow the given route, the pictures should then all be found in order. Some of the pictures will be obvious, especially to locals, some should be a bit more challenging.

The terrain is wheelchair & pushchair friendly & the route will take about an hour. Cache is a nano that contains only a log, please bring your own pen. Stealth will be required at GZ. This is our first urban cache, please log any DNFs so we can check on it.

Warning - Cache owners cannot be held responsible for any 'Retail Therapy' that may occur along the cache route!

****UPDATE 14.10.11******
I've corrected the issue with clues J&K & altered one of the calculations for the final co-ordinates, sorry for any confusion, JLD

A Before you leave Town Hall Square, how many wings were at the start co-ordinates?

B How many letters are in the bird's name?

C How many of these birds can be seen?

D What date is above this clock?

E How many of these can be found on the building?

F What date is opposite this building?

G How many balls can you see in play on this sculpture?

H What year is obscured in the picture? Add together the four digits.

I What year is obscured in the picture? Add together the four digits.

J What year is at the top of this building? Add together the four digits.

K How many of these Union Flags can be seen on the building?

L How many letters are in the word that is obscured in the picture?

M In what century was the oldest part of this building erected?

N There are 11 figures on the entrance, how many of them are women?

O In what year did the girl's school open?

P How old was King Richard III when he died?

Q Sir Thomas Cope laid this stone on what date in October?

R In what year did James Butler produce this sculpture?

S What year is obscured in the picture? Add together the four digits.

T What number is obscured in the picture?

Once you have all the answers, you might want to go to N 52° 38.019 W 001° 07.924. There are some benches here that you may wish to use to sit & work out the co-ordinates.

Now for the confusing bit.....

a = Q / K

b = F - D - E + B

c = J + A - K - B

d = H - I + N

e = (M / G) - N

f = (R - O) / (L x G)

g = S - C + (Q / K)

h = R - F

i = T - P

FINAL CO-ORDINATES ARE
N 52 ab.cde
W 001 0f.ghi
