Geocache Description:


Chatteris is a large town, mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. The town has evidence of settlement from the Neolithic period. After several fires in the 18th and 19th centuries, the majority of the town's housing dates from the late Victorian period onwards, with the tower of the parish church the only medieval building remaining.

Archaeological evidence has been found of Neolithic, Bronze Age and Iron Age settlements in the area, and Chatteris possesses what has been interpreted as the only upstanding Neolithic boundaries in Fenland. Saxon evidence is less well preserved, although in 679, Hunna, the chaplain to Æthelthryth of Ely built a hermitage on Honey Hill. More apocryphically, Chatteris is reputed to have been the last refuge of Boudica as she fled from the Romans.

To get the coordinates you will have to visit Jubilee gardens at the coordinates to answer the following questions:

A = How many benches beside the sign (both sides)?

B = Number of black street lights in Jubilee gardens?

C = Number of crowns on the sign?

D = Number of eels on the sign?

The final coordinates can be found at: N52 (D+1)(B+1).B(B-C)C E000 (A-4)(D*2).(A+C)0(A-D-1)
