Geocache Description:


Number 113 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 cache is not located at the above co-ordinates but it’s only a short walk away. To find it please answer the following questions. 

1) How many concrete bollards are there around the triangle of grass. Answer = A

2) What number bus stops at the bus stop? (Not the school bus) Answer = BCD

3) How many letters are there in the name of the lane? (don’t include the word ‘Lane’) Answer = E

Cache is located at N51° 20.AB(D-B)   W002° 2D.AC(E-5)

You are looking for a small clip-top box. Please bring your own pen. Parking available nearby and there’s a bench you can use whilst you work out the co-ordinates for the GZ. Please note GZ can be muddy at times. Enter through the small gate.

UPDATE Jan 2020. There may be a few animals in the field (horse, pony, sheep) at times. They may make a beeline for you but are apparently friendly. Please let me know if they become a problem and I will relocate the cache. Thanks

UPDATE 14th June 2021. Cache final destination has changed. Questions and answers remain the same but co-ordinate calculation above has been altered. If you solved it prior to this date you will need to recalculate. Thanks
