Geocache Description:


Update Aug 2019 - The sign at waypoint 2 has gone, I will leave the waypoint as listed, in case the sign is replaced at some point, therefore B=5

Update Nov 2019 - The sign at waypoint 6 has gone, I will leave the waypoint as listed, in case the sign is replaced at some point, therefore E=5

Update Apt 2021 - The final has moved to the location where I wanted it in the first place, but was unable to place it there due to proximity issues

This multicache is based on the #signsofpenrith project by Eden Arts. 20 of these signs were placed around Penrith, Cumbria in 2015. At the time of setting this cache (March 2018) there are 14 left, you will be guided around 13 of the remaining signs to collect information that will enable you to find the geocache at the end.

 

The trail starts at the published coordinates. If you want to, please take a photo of yourself with the first #signofpenrith and post it with your log (This is not a requirement, merely a request)

 

Locate the sign - How many CAPITAL letters are on this sign (Ignore the EdenArts Logo) = A

Once you have collected all the letter values you will find the cache at the following location

N54 K(B+F-J).H(E-1)(G-1) W002 CD.(G-L)A(I-2)

Checksum A+(B=5)+C+D+(E=5)+F+G+H+I+J+K+L=57

Well done to mallykay on the FTF
