To find the cache...
At the given coordinates, you will see a sign "Warmly Inviting" you to Sunday Morning Worship. Write the numbers down as ABCD
The cache can be found at N50 51.(C+4)(C)(A+C) W000 24.(B)((C*2)+A)(A+C)
You are looking for a 60ml screw top container. The cache is a short walk away. I had real problems getting good coords here for some reason but hopefully the hint should give it away.
Possibly one of the smallest additions to the church micro series!
Religion was held in greater esteem in the Findon inhabitants' lives than today. Two Mormon families are said to have resided in Nepcote in 1851. They met for fellowship in their cottage and the property was registered for worship by Plymouth Brethren in 1862. By 1875 preachers of various denominations, including Baptists, were preaching somewhere in Nepcote.
The present day tiny Nepcote Chapel of undressed flint with brick dressings and plain Gothic windows was built privately by a Mr. T. G. Graham in 1875 at his own expense. This was a mission chapel for Particular Baptists and accommodated a congregation of sixty. In 1887 it was said to be well attended.The chapel was bought from Mr. Graham’s estate after his death in 1906 by a group of shareholders and was put under trust and placed in the care of the Home Mission Committee of the Worthing Baptist Church. It was eventually handed to the Christchurch Road Baptist Church in 1924 after the shareholders had paid off the they loan needed to purchase it. The chapel was closed in 1939 when the congregation intended to move to a new building in 1940 in Findon Valley with 21 members.
The Nepcote Chapel was re-opened in 1948 for a small Evangelical sect and can now boast a massive congregation of nine!
If anybody would like to expand to this series please do, I would just ask that you could let Sadexploration know first so he can keep track of the Church numbers and names to avoid duplication
