Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

Number 1344 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.

Mosedale is a beautiful hamlet in an area offering beautiful scenery and great walks, while at the same time much more tranquil than the more popular lake district venues. 

The published co-ordinates will take you to the location of this 'Fine Pair'. The phone box is a K6 designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott.  Useful bit of useless knowledge is that Giles Scott also designed Liverpool Anglican Cathedral.

The post box is a wall box design. Rather than a free standing structure, it is set within the wall.

Before the phone box was placed there, I am told there was a well in the wall – now dried up or damned up but the hole in the wall remains.

In summer months, a cafe is open from Tuesday to Saturday 10-5, and Sunday 2-5 in the nearby Friends' Meeting House. The Friends (or Quakers as we usually know them) also allow their car park to be used -- donations are invited via a little post box.

The cache terrain is easy and the container soon spotted, but please be careful how you replace it or the next person may find it impossible to extract. The cache is on the wall of a local house so please be discreet.
