'trisant tour consists of 5 clues and one micro-cache leading to the final physical cache. The co-ordinates given are for the car park.
Searching for the clues will take you on a gentle stroll around some of the places of interest in the historic hilltop town of Llantrisant. Answering the questions at locations 1, 2, 3, 5 and 6 and finding the micro-cache at location 4 will provide you with the numbers to plug into the equations below.
x = (b+c)(a*g) + (c*d) - b
y = a(f+a)(g+b) + (b*e) - e
Solving these equations will allow you to complete the co-ordinates N 51 32.x W 003 22.y of the physical cache at location 7
The best place to park is at N 51 32.610 W 003 22.496

Having brought you to a somewhat unlikely corner of Llantrisant, we thought a word of explanation might be in order! You are on the site of the former non-conformist burial ground.
