Geocache Description:

A Fine Pair Alverton


Number 1251 in a series of caches 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’ apart and the phone boxes have to be red.


The letter box is a rarer type of wall box from the reign of Queen Victoria. There are only 35-50 types of this particular box left in the UK. Although not in the best condition, note the hole rusted in the hood, it is 150 years old! Not bad for a box that is cleared 6 times a week!

The Fine Pair series was originally started by wizardsmum but is now managed by mattd2k

If anybody would like to place 'A Fine Pair' of their own please do. I would just ask that you first visit to request a number to avoid any duplication

mattd2k also keeps a public Bookmark List of this series. Once your cache is published please contact him via to have yours added
