The Bolas Heathens: After much ummm'ing and ahhh'ing, we've decided to put this one to bed for now but may well resurrect it as a Traditional in the future in the hope that less stages attracts more visitors.

Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to come and visit this lovely location.

Geocache Description:

Somewhere Only We Know... well strictly speaking, not really, but it's in a pretty remote (and quite unique) location.

This, my 30th cache, is a 3 stage multi (therefore the above co-ordinates are for the first part).

Stage 1:
Look at the latin text on this sign.
Number of letters in the first word = $
Number of letters in the second word = %
Number of letters in the third word = *

Co-ordinates to Stage 2 =
N 52'42.[2+*] [*-$] [%+%+2]

W 002'11.[%+1] [*-%] [$+1]

Stage 2:
Look at the plaque on the back of this object.
John Higgins was born in ABCD (year)
And died in EFGH (year)
Charlotte Wootton was born in IJKL (year)
And died in MNPQ (year)

Co-ordinates to Stage 3:
N 52'43 . [D+H] [L] [G]

W 002'10 . [K-I] [P+1] [C+Q+1]

Stage 3:
I advise approaching from the South and parking here.
Don't be afraid to take the high road if the need arises.

Cover the cache up well as it's in a spottable location.
Good luck!
