Geocache Description:


Number 1464 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.


In the tiny village of Ipsden only one half of this “Fine Pair” continues in use for its intended purpose - but there is still a little Post Office very close by which you might want to pop in to support.

To find the cache you will first need to gather information from the post box.

Make a note of the three collection times, the telephone and fax numbers and the "postbox number".  

A = the sum of all the digits in the telephone number and the fax number

B = the number of times 0 (ie zero or the letter O) occurs in the six pieces of information you noted, divided by 2

C = the number of times the number 6 occurs in the six pieces of information you noted

Now stretch over to the phone box – look inside and see how far it is to Ipsden's defibrillator. That number, divided by 10, is D

The cache is located a short walk away at   N51 33.(A+D)3    W001 04.BC4    

The cache is a small locnloc box
