Geocache Description:

This is a short multi-cache which is an easy walk. The terrain is fairly flat(ish), but the forest can get very muddy. The clues should be easily found. The route is circular bringing you almost back to the car park. There are some fabulous views at various parts of the walk.

The location of the cache is N 51 0A.BCD / E0 0E.FGH. The letters will be replaced by numbers when you find or decipher the clues.
Park your car here : N51 03.646 / E000 05.623

How far is it to Ditchling Beacon? And Beachy Head? Add the two numbers. The first digit is E, the second is F. What is the difference in the distances between Boxhill and the Devils Dyke? This gives you D.

2. N51 03.505 / E000 05.682
Cars are not allowed to park on the forest between midnight and what time? Using 24 hour notation, the first hour digit of the time as shown is H and the second hour digit is B

3. N51 03.470 / E000 06.162
You are unauthorised, but if you were authorised, how many conditions are you required to fulfill before entering this place? Subtract one to give you A

4. N51 03.572 / E000 06.104
Theres something ODD here. How many padlocks are there? (assume nothing) The answer is C. You get bonus kudos points if you email me with why they are here! Or if you want to know just ask!

5. N51 03.683 / E000 06.324
Don’t get wibbly wobbly – you are almost there. There are many letters here – exactly how many? This gives you G.

The cache contains some random treasure, a CD of some current favourite tracks by Peter Green and others, and a camera. This is my first cache and any comments would be much appreciated.
