Geocache Description:

A short multi cache for anyone caching in Peterborough or anyone stopping off on their way elsewhere.

The cache is based around the tactile information board, located at the published co-ordinates and placed to assist travellers with visual impairments, located just outside the station building itself at the front.

Our intention with the design of this cache is that having sight and being able to read the board visually isn’t an advantage as such. To that end, the final cache, located within a few minutes’ walk, is best located by feel rather than by sight. Of course, sighted cachers are quite welcome.

The left-hand side of the sign contains a 3D textured map of the station and facilities, and three columns of information in 3D textured panels on the right. It is these columns which are of interest for the cache.

The item second from bottom in the second column is a single six-letter word. How many Braille dots make up the first letter of this word? Call this A.

The third item in the second column (the one denoted by a short horizontal bar) contains how many letters? Call this B.

The first item in the first column is marked ‘You are here’. How many letter Es occur in the item immediately below this? Call this C.

The third item in the first column is a single seven-letter word. How many Braille dots make up the first letter of this word? Call this D.

The third item in the third column (marked with a star) has how many letters in its first word? Call this E.

The item at the top of the third column has how many letters in total? Call this F.

The fourth item in the third column contains two words. How many letters are there in both words combined? Call this G.

The final item in the first column has how many letters in its first word? Call this H.

The final cache can be found at N 52° 3A.BCD W 000° 1E.FGH.

The difficulty rating reflectes the stealth required. Please make an educated decision about the level of muggle activity when you arrive at GZ, and if you find it's just too muggly, we'd suggest you return another time - we'd rather you protected the cache. We'd strongly advise you to check the hint (which is intentionally specific) to enable quick finding of the cache. Thank you.
