Most cars now have a Satnav fitted, so I thought you might like the postcode for this church.

St Mary’s Church is situated on the Eastern outskirts of Basingstoke town centre. There has been a Christian presence on this site since Anglo- Saxon times. However the Old Church, a Grade 2 Listed building, is composed of three principal parts dating from 1770,1880 and 1912.
In 1970 the hall and the new purpose-built rectory were added. During the 1980′s the church continued to grow significantly and it was decided to build a new auditorium to accommodate the growing congregation.
The auditorium has been built on the original church car park. The rectory and gardens were purchased by the PCC and have now become the new car park and annexe (used as offices and class rooms). The reception and the atrium were added and the kitchen and toilets were extended and upgraded.
The Lychgate to the graveyard is locked; enter via the opening in Goat Lane by the monument.
To find the cache go to the above coordinates, and find the grave of
Mary Ann born September AB CDEF
The cache can be found at N 51 15. F A (B-E) W 001 04. D C (A-C)

If you add up all the digits in the coordinates it should come to 38
