How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

This is a simple test of your map reading skills using 'Straight Line Navigation' (sometimes called 'Herringbone Navigation').

Straight Line

Starting at the listed coordinates (LC) on Peppard Common, head initially WSW and then follow the ‘straight line’ in the direction of the cache (indicated by GZ).

You will need to use either the paper form of OS Landranger Sheet 175 (1:50,000), or the on-line version of this sheet from Streetmap on which the starting point (LC) is indicated by the big orange arrow in the square to the west of Peppard Common.

Only ‘coloured’ roads (yellow and above) are shown on the straight line.  Ignore all tracks, footpaths, etc.

Approximately 1.1 km after the final junction there is a farm to the north of the road. The farm's name (as written) comprises a total of eleven letters. Write the name into the following grid and convert the letters to numbers in the usual way (A = 1, Z = 6, etc.).


The cache can be found at:

N51 32.eij W000 57.cak

You don’t actually need to drive the course, although if you do you will pass along some pretty South Oxfordshire lanes.
