Geocache Description:

The Grand Union Canal links Birmingham to London with a waterway which is 145 miles long and contains 166 locks. This cache is one of a series to be found along or close to the Hertfordshire/Buckinghamshire stretch of the canal.

This cache is a very short and simple offset. The co-ordinates at the top of the page will get you to the start point. Here you will find a Grand Junction Canal Company mile marker. How many miles is it to Braunston? This number is AB. There is a date on the plate at the bottom commemorating Kenneth and Anne Duval. This is 19CD.

Now walk along the canal towards the nearest bridge. There is a number on this bridge. This is number 1EE. Underfoot, the bricks that make up the towpath bear a date (watch out for the rogue odd date!). This is 19FG.

Now, in the usual manner, use the numbers you have gathered to substitute into the following formula to obtain the cache location.

N51º E(A-F).BDG W000º DB.AD(C/3)
