How Geocaching Works

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

Geocache Description:

Number 1016 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.

A short multi in the little area of Calenick.

Please try to respect the neighbours if doing this at night. It's a small area and you'll probably be noticed. Also, as the Fine Pair are on the road, you'll need to keep an eye on little ones and dogs.

To find the cache, find the following information and work out the equation. All phone numbers INCLUDE the STD code.

N 50 14.ABC W 005 03.DEC

A= Last digit in the year of the public notice. (Above the phone)

B= 6th digit in the phone box phone number.

C= 2nd digit in the phone box phone number.

D= 2nd digit in the M-F collection time

E= Last number in the phone box phone number

Checksum: A+B+C=12

Checksum: D+E+C=10

The Fine Pair series was originally started by wizardsmum but is now managed by mattd2k
