How Geocaching Works

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

Geocache Description:

This multi cache will take you on a circular walk around a Hampshire market town and then on to the final location. The above co-ordinates are for the first location. There are a number of free parking spaces close by for up to an hour (Sundays and after 6pm anytime)or you could park in the pay and display car park at the station just a little further along.

It would probably be a good idea to take a calculator along with you to do this cache. Whilst working out the clues, please ignore any figures after the decimal point.

As this cache was placed during Easter, there are four easter gifts for the first finders.
