The answers to the final co-ords questions were designed to be solvable from the Jigsaw puzzle pictures.No need to go to the memorial if you don't want to stand at the memorial counting things and risk Muggles coming close to unexpectedly.

From the car park we suggest initially walking in a N.W'ly direction to the end of the trees on the right, before heading towards the cache.

Stout footwear will be required most seasons.
