Devious_Dwarferkev: Thought about this a bit and with heavy heart, am archiving this cache. :(

I won't just stand by and subject people to that quite frankly, disgusting mess of a phone box - it was nothing like this when I set the cache! :(

Also by archiving, i'll free up a place for someone else - there are other Fine Pair caches in the city, so it's not a big loss here.

Thanks to all who took the time to visit this cache.

Geocache Description:

The 2nd of my Fine Pair caches. A very straightforward cache, that shouldn't take long. BYOP (and watch the traffic when crossing to check both parts of the pair).


Number 970 in a series of caches where a red telephone box is in close proximity to a post box.


The only rules are that they have to be able to be photographed together, be not more than 100’ apart and the phone boxes have to be red.


The cache can be found at: N55 57ABC W003 10.(D+2)EF.

The posted coordinates will take you to the phonebox (the phone box is not required for this cache now as it's been misused by people as a toilet). To find the Cache (which isn't far), you just need to check the postbox for the following clues:

The address on Cullins road has 2 digits (lets treat them as YZ) to find the value of A, subtract Y from Z.

On the information sign, there's a date at the very bottom:
FE/D/2017

There's a Mon-Fri time (the earliest time) the 1st digit =C. The 2nd digit = B.

Checksum: North = 9. West = 17.
