Geocache Description:

A straightforward offset-cache set around St Luke's Church in Boscoppa. The headline co-ords are for the start point.
The cache is not located within the church grounds.

What to do
Look at the noticeboard.

The board holds notices for two groups shown in yellow lettering at the top of the board. Subtracting the number of letters in the name of the group on the left, from the number of letters in the name of the group on the right = A

The number of Bezants (balls) on the top row of the Bishop’s Mitre (Hat) pictured on the notice board = B

The number of letters in the first word of the line of text at the bottom of the sign = C (Hint = It lasts a lifetime!)

The number of Bezants (balls) on the bottom row of the Bishop’s Mitre (Hat) pictured on the notice board = D

The number of letters in the name of the country to which St Luke's Church belongs = E

The cache is hidden at:

N50°21.ABC W004°45.DAE and can be accessed by following Boscoppa Road to the northeast of the church

About the Church
The Parish of Boscoppa is relatively young. It was only created in April 1993 by dividing the Parish of Charlestown, as the population of nearby Boscoppa and Phernyssick had grown in size over the previous years.
Although the Church is not a traditional building, it still holds regular services. In fact, as it is spooky_luke and CornishCandy’s Parish Church, we attended some services to have our Marriage Banns read here a number of years ago!
The Church is dedicated to St Luke (no connection to the CO!), but Bishop Bronescombe is another very important figure to this particular Church. Born around 1220, he was a former Bishop of Exeter who helped to support the growth of Christianity in Cornwall.
