Geocache Description:


A Puzzle-style Letterbox/Hybrid cache set for the 2018 Winter Geolympix with permission from the National Trust. If you intend to attempt the Letter/Box Challenge on Mega day you may want to leave this until then. This cache is NOT at the given co-ords. This is just a spot in the meadow that's suitable for GeoArt. It is within a mile of this location though.

The White Hart, a cache at Ashridge between 2015 and 2017 is remembered by this cache, which could've been called The White Heat if we'd not needed an H for the Winter Geolympix Letter/Box Series. It was also an inspiration for this cache - along with I'm thinking of a number - as its co-ords were famously (see the logs) terrible. You might as well be steered to it with a game of Hotter/Colder. You must have played this? "You're warm. Warmer. Cooler. Warmer. Very warm now. Hot. Red hot! Scorchingly incandescent! Bingo!" Well, here's a chance to play to get the actual co-ords for this cache.
The final box is hidden at N51 49-point something, W000 35-point-something. The somethings are revealed when you correctly guess them.

This Link will take you to the page you need.

My thanks to Simply Paul for placing the cache box and doing the maintenance on it, and to The National Trust for permission to place this cache on the Ashridge Estate.

Please DO NOT remove the stamp or ink pad. Neither is a swap - They make this cache a LetterBox/Hybrid. Thank you!
