Geocache Description:

A Fine Pair Ompton


Number 1309 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 made by the Machan foundry of Scotland as was the last type of this lamp box they produced before they went bust. The telephone kiosk is the standard K6 which no longer contains a working telephone and is currently just empty.






Look at the number of the telegraph pole. This is DP ???

The cache can be found at:

N 53 10. (996-???)

W 000 58. (209-???)
