Geocache Description:

A short multi-cache based on information easily found at St Alphege Church, Solihull. The cache is a short walk from the Church and easily accessible from the footpath


The listed co-ordinates will take you to the church

Here you will need to look around the perimeter of the church to locate the following information. Note: All information is either attached to the church or on a bench next to the church. There is no need to leave the footpath to gather any of the information.

AB = Mary Ann Wratislavia died Dec A4th 177B
CD = Charles Remfry C0th October 19D4
E = Number of screws on the erratic boulder plaque
FG = Charles Chattock died F9th April 182G
H = Joan Audrey Morrall 14th June 19H2
J = Gift of Eliz Fisher 17J6 [This now seems to be permanently covered by a floral display so....J=4]
K = Vera Eileen Neale November 1K81
L = John Wilkinson 26th January 20L2 [This seems to have been moved so....L=0 (zero)]

Using these numbers you will be able to work out the final co-ordinates:

N52 E(C+F).D(G-F)F, W01 JD.(H-A)(G-L)(B-K)

The Church:

St Alphege's is a medieval church. The spire was originally 59m and collapsed in 1757: the current spire is 57.34m

The Church is a large cruciform structure, partly in the later and partly in the early styles of English architecture, the tracery mouldings and corbels in the interior are extremely elegant; there are also some fine specimens of tabernacle and screen work: it consists of nave, chancel, aide aisles, and gallery, with embattled tower, surmounted by an octagonal spire, and contains a peal of eight bells

The church has a historic pipe organ dating from the seventeenth century and has had substantial restoration work by Elliot, Brosswood, Hill and Nicholson. The organ case came from St Martin in the Bull Ring Birmingham around 1820.
