How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

Number 973 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.

Please be aware that the headline coordinates are near houses and a play area. Try not to block the road and keep children and pets near on the road.

The cache is not hidden at the headline coordinates due to location and proximity to other caches. It is within a mile of the coordinates.

Please note that there is a defibrillator in the phone box. Please do not go in the phone box unless it is an emergency.

To get the coordinates for the final, answer the following questions:

  • A = 2nd number in post box post code (PL-? --D)
  • BC = All the numbers in the post box post code ADDED together (PL?? ??D)
  • D = 2nd number in the year on the round plaque on the wall to the left of the phone box -?--
  • E = 4th number in the year on the round plaque on the wall to the left of the phone box ---?
  • F = The Monday to Friday collection HOUR on the post box
Final at:- N 50 19.ABC W 004 53.DEF

Checksum for all the numbers (A+B+C+D+E+F = 22)
