How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

### Geocache Description:

This is one of a five part multicache. The first four ‘virtual’ parts (N,S,E,W) have to be solved first to find the start co-ordinates for the fifth part. Solving the fifth part will lead you to the actual cache.

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:

A|B|C|D|E|F|G|H|I|J|K|L|M|N|O|P|Q|R|S|T|U|V|W|X|Y|Z
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.

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 car park (free out of season) from which it is about a 3 mile circular walk which takes in all four locations. The views are spectacular and the location exposed so try to pick a clear, calm day for this one if you can.

The co-ordinates for the first clue are: N 50° 40.001 W 001° 33.000 and what is this a half size replica of?

" _ _ _ _ _ " " _ _ _ _ _ _ " Decrypt to a single number _ (a)

The co-ordinates for the second clue are: N 50° 40.004 W 001° 32.499 and how old was “A L T” when he died?

_ _ (b)

The co-ordinates for the third clue are: N 50° 39.696 W 001° 34.716 and what was used to hold the rockets up?

" _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ " Decrypt to a single number _ (c)

While you are here make sure you take in the view from the viewpoint at: N 50° 39.689 W 001° 34.752

The co-ordinates for the fourth clue are: N 50° 39.780 W 001° 34.953 and what did the ‘s e’ provide ‘e’ for?

" _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ " Decrypt to a single number _ (d)

and while you are here, what is the date above the arch of ‘t n o b’ ? both with and without the anno domini:

_ _ _ _ Decrypt to a single number _ (e)

_ _ _ _ _ _ Decrypt to a single number _ (f)

Some simple maths will give you the solution to this cache:

(d x e) – (a + c + f ) + b = _ _ _

Part of this walk is very close the "Lord Palmerstone" cache so you can save your self some leg work if you do the two together.
