Geocache Description:

Number 892 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 posted co-ordinates will take you to a rare Fine Pair (or rather a Fine Pair of Pairs!)  in North West London, not far from Chalk Farm tube station. You will need to visit the co-ordinates, search for the clues and piece together the numbers required for the actual co-ordinates of your prize.


A Fine Primrose Pair - of Pairs.

Here you will find yourself right on the cusp of Camden Town and Hampstead, in the pleasant and leafy district of Primrose Hill. And before you you should see not just one Fine Pair, but a fine pair of fine pairs - two phone boxes and a double pillar box. A rare pair indeed - and a fine bear not far away too, but more of him later!


These are your tasks, to be carried out in any order you like. All the answers are very near the Fine Pair, the road is quiet but still cross with care.
