Geocache Description:

35mm film cases make for boring caches? Well, they are a bit dull... so this is first of a new series to prove that these caches can be made interesting!  More caches to follow soon...

Solve the Puzzle for the cache co-ordinates, as you won't find it at the listed ones!  Please note that you MUST sign the log book to qualify.  Please don't force it open...

N 52° 28.ABC
W 1° 34.DEF

A: Built by George London and Henry Wise.  Jerome K Jermoe talks about this maze in his novel 3 Men in a Boat.  Where is it?  (Number of letters in 1st word)
B: Grace Cathedral Labyrinth in San Fransisco is shaped like what number?
C: Built in 1975 in Gloucester, The (BLANK) represents the foot of a minotaur or collosus. (Number of letters in missing word)
D Just outside Castlewellen is The (BLANK) Maze, and until 2007 it was the longest permanent maze in the world. (Number of letters in missing word)
E Alexander Thynn has a penchant for mazes, and has designed several.  He is also the Marqess of which Somerset City? (Number of letters)
F In 2010, a singer embarked on The Labyrinth, her debut tour. Who was it? (Number of letters in first name minus number of letters in surname)

Cache contains logbook only; writing impliment required!  First to find prize of an appropriate puzzle is also in camo bag.

IMPORTANT It is, unfortunately, rather easy to break if you try and open this incorrectly. When the ball is in the slider, DO NOT attempt to slide it the wrong way!!! If it doesn't open when you thought it would, sorry, but you have to go the whole way around again. Trying to save time by sliding it in reverse, even a little way, is likely to break it! Hint: If you tilt the container so that the lid is pointing down when you operate the slide, it is more likely to open.

While you're in the area, you might want to have a go at some of the other puzzle caches; the parking point given is also the starting point for a couple of other caches...

Please note that the terrain rating reflects the expected muddy conditions right by the cache after wet weather.  Whilst the walk to this is likely to be ok, the area next to the cache is very soft underfoot, even when dry!
