Geocache Description:


Number 1124 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.


This Fine Pair has been consumed by the change of times - neither member is used for its original purpose anymore. The phone box has found a new life as a kiosk. The post box is not in use but is preserved for being historical and has a sign to inform people about this fact.



You need to find quite a few numbers at the GZ (sorry). First, take a look at the sign on the post box. You'll learn that the box is dating from around 1AB0. Then walk a bit further up the road. There is a street light roughly 15 m or 50 ft away from the phone box with a few signs attached to it. Look at the sign that's facing the pavement a bit over head height. The very first number on that sign is C. The number of times you can find this number in the text is D. The two digit number that's roughly half way through the text is EF. The second digit of the number in the last line is G. Finally, look up to find a traffic enforcement sign that has a four digit number on it. Before renaming those digits to HIJK, let's divide the third one by 2 and subtract 1 from the last one.

Look for the cache at:
