Geocache Description:

Wainscott is a small village in the Hoo Peninsular, in Kent. It is in the civil parish of Frindsbury Extra, in the Medway Unitary Authority, that is Medway Council. By 1950 it had been absorbed into the neighbouring residential areas of Strood. Wainscott itself is located immediately next to Frindsbury, and is surrounded by beautiful agricultural land, as well as ancient woodlands. It is speculated that the name is derived from the OE meaning Wagonner Cot or Wagon Shed.[1]

Wainscott is now bypassed to the east by the 'Wainscott Eastern Bypass' and to the north by 'Wainscott Northern Bypass'. These roads, both named the A289, lead traffic from the A2 to the Medway Tunnel. These two roads meet at the 'Four Elms Roundabout', where the A228 climbs 'Four Elms Hill' and onto the Hoo Peninsula, where the A228 becomes the Ratcliffe highway

To find the cache you will need to go to the sign, Number of metal clips on the grey slabs that line the footpath between the two roads =A, B, Number of strawberry's on the sign = C, Number of leaves on the bottom of the sign = D,E. N51 24.(B-E)(A+C)D E000 30.(C+E)(C+D)(B-D). THE CHECKSUM FOR THE CO-ORDS IS 50.

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.
