All the clues and the final micro lie within or on Chester city walls. It is designed to give visitors a quick tour of the city but at the same time draw attention to one or two lesser known sights that locals may not have noticed.
The co-ordinates above are for Gorse Stacks car park. Anyone who knows the city will know that parking can be difficult, there are other places available and this is not necessarily the best for any of the clues or the final location.
You have to find six digits to complete the final co-ordinates which take the form:
N53 11.abc W002 53.def
Clue a - N53 11.585 W002 53.575
(London – Bristol) – (Worcester-Ludlow) = a
Clue b – N53 11.535 W002 53.483
In what year was the column in the central garden erected? 17xy.
Clue c – N53 11.308 W002 53.287
6 of the original 9 were restored in 1969 but in which century were they originally built?
Clue d – N53 11.390 W002 53.686
The former church of the holy trinity was rebuilt in 1865. How many years did the rebuild take (deduct the start year from the end year)?
Answer = d
Clue e – N53 11.415 W002 53.504
The former HQ of the Roman Legion first became a pub in which year – 1v6w
e = w-v
Clue f - N53 11.228 W002 53.770
Only a small part of the wall remains at this point. There is at least 15 ft below the ground and it stretches for 7f5 ft towards the Watergate.
Substitute the six digits to find the location of the micro. NOTE the final container is accessible from ON the city walls.
Please note that there is no writing implement in the cache which is a 35mm film container and please ensure that the container is carefully replaced in its hiding place.
Enjoy the walk.
