Geocache Description:

This off-set multi is set in the pretty hamlet of Great Kimble. Parking is possible in Church Lane, opposite the church or at a lay-by on the other side of the A4010. Please do not park at the bus stop.


St Nicholas Church in the 12th century probably consisted only of a nave without aisles and a small chancel. In the middle of the 13th century the north and south aisles were added with the nave arcades. In the first half of the 14th century the chancel arch was added and the chancel rebuilt. The west tower was added later that century. The nave was re-roofed in the 16th century. The font (late 12th century) is a finely carved example of the local "Aylesbury" type.

The church was completely restored by J.P.Seddon in 1876-81. All the flint and stone exterior is of that date and the chancel and its aisles were rebuilt. A modern roof was built over the 16th century nave roof. The church's mission is to be 'A beacon of hope, living and sharing the love of God'. Sunday morning services are held once a month.

The information required is at the church porch.

A is the number of studs on the main door that do not secure anything

BC is the number of yellow rectangular stained glass panes on just one of the side windows (each window has the same number)

D is the number of square panes of glass in the window above the door

E is the number of blue panes in the window above the door

The cache is at N51° 44.(D+1)(A+C)(A+E) W000° 48.(B+E)(D-E-A)(A+B+E). The checksum of all digits is 55. It is recommended that you exit the church onto Church Lane and turn left. There is a stile to go over, a nearby electric fence and there may be horses in the fields. Maybe also - a barking dog!

geocaching.com states under 'Help Center' in Paragraph 1.7. Geocaching etiquette: 'We like to keep things fun for everyone, so we have a few rules we encourage everyone to follow. Sign both the logbook and log your find online to get your smiley. Geocache owners love reading about your experience'. There are more rules, but this is the first one. This cache owner requests that if on the rare occasion geocachers are unable to sign, an explanation is given in their log. A photo of the cache, if possible should then be sent through the messaging system.
