Geocache Description:

Number 1248 in the popular Fine Pair series 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 feet apart and the phone box has to be red.


Shillingford Abbot is a tiny hamlet in the parish of Shillingford near Exeter. The letter box is functional, but the phone box now houses a defibrillator. Remember, if you witness a cardiac arrest you often (as here) won't be able to get the defib out of its box without a code from emergency services on 999. Call 999 and say "cardiac arrest", and give your location. They will tell you where the nearest debrillator is, and give you its key code if one is needed. Someone must do basic life support while you are phoning 999.

The defibrillator is in cabinet number XXX - ABAC, and there are cardiac arrest instructions to the right of it. Why would I draw that to your attention? ;)

The post box is at EXD EF.

The final location is a short walk away at:

N50 41.(SHOUT)CB W3 32.(D+E)F(A-B-C)
