Geocache Description:

Caen Flight is a series of 29 locks on the Kennett and Avon canal. The cache consists of two virtual steps which give the coordinates for the final physical cache. Suitable for children.

There are 29 locks on the Caen Hill of the Kennett and Avon canal, which are compressed into 2.5 miles. This section has the most locks in a very short space, and often has canal boats negotiating the hill. It also has a good view, plenty of space for the kids to run around (beware the water!), a tea shop and space to picnic.

More information about the town of Devizes and a picture of Caen Flight is available at this web site.

This cache requires you to solve clues at one location in order to work out the coordinates for the final physical cache. It's all easy, requires no more than a mile of walking (mostly on a gentle hill) and will take about half an hour in total. There are even proper footbridges to cross the canal instead of balancing along a lock gate.

There is a sign at the above grid reference. Look for the green box in the top right corner of the sign. In the green box there is a phone number which is (abcde) fghijk.

Now insert the numbers into this to get the coordinates: N51°21.bkg', W02°01.jcc'.

Now find the real cache which is a large ammo box. When replacing the cache please ensure it is hidden from view in every direction.

If you are travelling by car then you may like to park in the Caen Flight car park (£1). Enter the access road at N51°21.388', W02°01.807' and drive to the top of the road.

Please beware of feeding the Swans, they can get aggressive.
