Geocache Description:

This is #98 in a series of caches where a red telephone box is in close proximity to a post box.
The only rule is that they have to be able to be photographed together, and the phone boxes have to be red.


Kirby-le-Soken today still has the feel of a traditional English village, it is situated in an area of land called the Le-Sokens in Essex and is isolated from Kirby Cross, Frinton-on-Sea and Walton-on-the-Naze by fields and retains a village shop, two pubs and two churches. Kirby was originally a scattered farming community with an upper and lower road. Many people still refer to the village as lower Kirby with the upper road now known as Kirby Cross.

As a young Brownie/Guide, I was driven along this road from camp at Thorpe le Soken, to Church at Walton one Sunday morning, on a summers day. Passing through this village, I was impressed with its beauty and village feel. Id never seen it before, even though we lived a short distance away. That's what it was like when families didn't own cars!

The Fine Pair series was originally started by wizardsmum.

If anybody would like to place 'A Fine Pair' of their own please do, I would just ask that you let mattd2kknow first so he can keep track of the numbers and names to avoid duplication.

He also keeps a public Bookmark List of this series so once your cache is published please contact him via his profile page to have yours added.
