Geocache Description:

Solve the cipher or solve the maze - your choice!

Please note: GEOCACHING ON NATIONAL TRUST PROPERTY IS AT YOUR OWN RISK.

The co-ordinates above are not for the cache itself but for a random roundabout.

Whichever your choose, assume N51 and W000.

Choice 1 - The Cipher

Co-ordinates are contained in this cipher text:-
tqbdxhqhhozraqwzielxkkrgtcayhjfeqn
I'm using the Vigenere cipher. Your task is to find the key I've used!

Choice 2 - The Maze

Note: The below link leads to a web page on my personal website containing a java applet (same as for all my previous maze caches). For this to work you need to have the java runtime environment (JRE) installed on your computer (which it usually is by default). If you have any concerns about running java applications on your computer then you should probably stick with trying to solve the cipher.

Still with me? OK, go to:-
www.15ddv.me.uk/geo/aa/maze12-idxwk4s2m.html

See the Instructions link to learn how to navigate the maze.

Either choice

Note: The information from both the cipher and the maze will require just a little manipulation to yield up the required co-ordinates. However, if you've got that far, the last little step should be easy.

Please bring your own writing implement.
