Geocache Description:

'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

The final cache is a small (½ ltr) plastic box containing a log book and pencils and a few small items to trade.

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. The headstones have been moved to positions around the sides. The ivy covered wall is the remains of an ancient Fives Court. This game was apparently similar to squash.
