This is a multi-waypoint puzzle cache using a permanent orienteering course based at Chingford Park.
The co-ordinates above are for the main entranceway to the park.
You will need to visit a series of Orienteering controls to get the clue to determine the final co-ordinates of the cache. Each control has an orange and white metal plate with a number and two letters.
Copy down the letters and put them together in numeric order by station to get the key to decypher the final co-ordinates.
You now have the key to decrypt the co-ordinates of the cache itself at:
- 05 S 45° 50.555 E 170° 32.389
- 08 S 45° 50.598 E 170° 32.285
