Geocache Description:


Number 1289 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.


 

Welcome to March Baldon, one of several settlements which have ‘Baldon’ somewhere in their name - but this is the only one which qualifies for a cache in the “Fine Pair” cache series!

As in many small villages the phone box no longer functions as it was originally intended

To find the cache you will first need to gather information from both of the items in this “Fine Pair”

Look inside the taller of the Pair to discover

A = on the keypad, find the number that is above X

B = on the keypad, find the number that is above Z

C = the round yellow cabinet is numbered 93C1

Now for the shorter one, read all the information on the white notice on the front and determine

D = the number of times X appears, divided by 3

E = the number of times the box is emptied in a standard week

F = A later collection is available elsewhere at F.15pm

The cache is located a short walk away at   N51 41.ABC W001 11 DEF    

The cache is a small magnetic tube

The A Fine Pair series is managed by mattd2k

If anybody would like to place 'A Fine Pair' of their own please do. I would just ask that you first visit www.afinepair.co.uk to request a number to avoid any duplication

mattd2k also keeps a public Bookmark List of this series. Once your cache is published please contact him via geocachingafinepair@gmail.com to have yours added
