This cache completes the trilogy of Cleator, Cleator Moor & Moor Row War Memorial caches. The name of this memorial 'Men of Cleator and Trumpet Terrace', although the memorial is engraved 'T Terrace'
Before we start it is time for a bit of ‘useless knowledge’ - at least I had to look it up when setting the cache. If you think of a set of battlements on a castle you would imagine a sort of crenelated edge, with bits that stick up, and lower pieces in-between. It seems the higher pieces are known as merlons, and the lower bit is a crenelle, or embrasure.
You also need to consider the pointy bits on top of a fence. I am unable to find the definitive answer to this, so this is my approach for the metal fence across the front of the memorial enclosure. There are ‘black spikes’, and ‘silver spears’.
You need to count, along the enclosing wall to the right of the monument.
- the number of merlons (not counting the corners) : A
- and the number of crenelles : B
On the metal fence at the front you need to count,
- number of black spikes on fence section to left of gate : C
- number of silver spears on fence section to left of gate : D
- number of black spikes on gate : E
- number of silver spears on gate : F
- number of black spikes on fence section to right of gate : G
- number of silver spears on fence section to right of gate : H
The cache can be found at N54° 30. RST W03° 31.XYZ where
R = B-2 S = G-E T = E
X = F-A Y = C-B-A Z = D-H+F
If anybody would like to expand the War Memorial Series, please do. I would ask that you let Just-us-Two know first by filling in the contact form on the War Memorial Series website warmemorialseries.co.uk https://warmemorialseries.co.uk/ so they can keep track of the War Memorial numbers and names to avoid duplication.
