Geocache Description:

Originally set by McDehack, then enhanced by Master Mariner.


The London Rainbow Cache series comprises seven virtual caches that can be logged individually. Information obtained from each cache can then be used to find an eighth, physical cache.  

The London Rainbow Cache 6 - Indigo

This is the sixth of seven virtual caches each of which has a connection to the colours of the rainbow. The sites, for all the virtual caches, are a little bit off the well beaten tourist tracks but take the visitor to interesting places, in and around London, that would not normally be seen.

The caches can be done in any order but information will need to be collected from all the caches to help find the final cache.

You could stop here for a meal if you could afford it. With your back to the "colour" turn to your right and walk about 60m up the hill. What you are looking for is evidence of a famous author who had apartments here as well as offices for his magazine.
