Geocache Description:


This is a simple multi-cache bringing you to the First World War war memorial for Ruislip Common. The building is said to have been licensed for nonconformist worship around 1854, and possibly originally licensed in 1850. It was taken over for Methodist use in 1882. It was still functioning as a church as late as 1994 but has been a private residence since about 2004. A ceremony is still conducted at the memorial on Remembrance Sunday.

The memorial itself is a large stone pedimented tablet with pilasters either side. The pediment bears a laurel wreath and the whole measures 1905mm high by 1676mm wide. The dedication and names are of black incised lettering.

The final can be found a short walk away from the memorial. To calculate the final co-ordinates research the following information on the memorial. Then turn the letters into numbers in the usual way - A = 1, Z = 26 etc. Please remember that the chapel is now private residence so please stay on the pavement to make your observations.

The cache can be found at:

N51 35.abc W000 26.def

a = Initial of second IVE on left hand list of names.

b = Initial of fifth IVE on left hand list of names.

c = Initial of second WALLIS on right hand list of names.

d = Initial of first CARTLIDGE on right hand list of names + Initial of third LAVENDER on right hand list of names.

e = Initial of second WOODMAN on left hand list of names.

f = Initial of first IVE on left hand list of names.

If anybody would like to expand to this series please do, I would just ask that you could let Just-Us-Two know first at justustwo1013@gmail.com so they can keep track of the memorial numbers and names to avoid any duplication.
