The first four ‘virtual’ parts each consist of a number of clues within walking distance of each other, although the caches themselves are miles apart.
At each virtual cache there will be a series of co-ordinates and questions. The co-ordinates will lead you to the answers to the questions.
The answers are then combined following the appropriate instructions, to result in a number which is the final solution to the cache.
If you want to confirm your visit to this virtual cache E-Mail your final answer to me and I will let you know whether you have solved it correctly.
Some of the answers will need to be decrypted and converted to a single digit number – this is how it works:
1|2|3|4|5 |6|7|8|9|0|1|2|3|4|5| 6|1|8|9|0|1| 3|3|0|0|0|
GEOCACHING for example can be calculated as shown: G=7, E=5, O=5, C=3, A=1, C=3, H=8, I=9, N=4, G=7.
Add the digits together: 7 + 5 + 5 + 3 + 1 + 3 + 8 + 9 + 4 + 7 = 52
Keep adding the digits of the sums until you are left with a single digit number: 5 + 2 = 7.
Right here we go :
The co-ordinates at the top of the page will take you to a free car park from which it is a 1.8 mile easy walk which takes in all four clues and back. You can actually drive to within a few yards of them all if you want.
The co-ordinates for the first clue are: N 50° 39.981 W 001° 06.085
Unfortunately the information board has gone - so as a temporary fix the word you need to decrypt here is FORTIFICATIONS
and what exisiting(sic)" _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ " were re-armed here?
Decrypt to a single number _ (a)
The co-ordinates for the second clue are: N 50° 40.028 W 001° 06.319
and what else apart from ‘k of h’ and ‘m v’ endeared ‘C A P’ to all who new him? " _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ "
Decrypt to a single number _ (b)
The co-ordinates for the third clue are: N 50° 40.220 W 001° 06.967
and how far is it to London, “the haven” and a “dear small market town”? (Hint - If your stuck on this bit use the clue) _ _ + _ _ + _ _
Put the three together _ _ _ (c)
The co-ordinates for the fourth clue are: N 50° 40.220 W 001° 07.090
and what did the ‘w d’ do to ‘c’ in 1948? " _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ "
Decrypt to a single number _ (d)
Some simple maths will give you the solution to this cache: (a + b + c + 7) x d = _ _ _
