Geocache Description:


Village signs is a series of caches based on the ornate signs that depict the heritage, history and culture of the villages that put them up (normally on the village green!).

Four Marks was originally settled by veterans of the Crimean War, who were allocated plots for their smallholdings, and was the site of a telegraph.

The village has its own restored railway station on the local railway line, services from which connect with the nearest national rail station 4.4 miles (7.1 km) to the northeast, at Alton.

Four Marks is situated in some of the finest unspoilt Hampshire countryside. It is about half way along the historic St. Swithun's Way passing through the south-western fringe of the village, which links the South Downs Way at Winchester, the capital of Saxon England; to the North Downs Way at Farnham.

A simple offset multi at the Four Marks Village sign. Only use one side of the sign to collect the clues

The cache can be found by adding X to the headline Northings

A = number of letters in the name of the lane

B = number of letters on the finger opposite 'To The Pond'

C = number of trains

X = A + B - C

and subtracting Y from the Westings

D = number of lily pads

E = number of dragon flies

Y= D + E

Checksum for all 15 digits of the final coordinates is 43


If anybody would like to expand this series please do. I would just ask that you let Smokeypugs know first so they can keep track of the Village Sign numbers and names to avoid duplication.
