Geocache Description:

THE LISTED COORDINATES ARE NOT THOSE OF THE FINAL CACHE BUT ARE A GOOD PLACE TO PARK CLOSE BY.

The coordinates of this cache are hidden within the table below. To find them you will need to visit the four caches in our “Walk in the woods” series, these are :

Bishop Wood

My Head Hurts

Wheldrake Wood

Woodland Fortress

In each of these caches is a clue in the form of a 2 by 8 grid with some cells shaded and others left blank. Use this clue both vertically and horizontally to shade cells in the table. Once all four clues have been found, the remaining unshaded cells contain the coordinates of the cache

All 5 caches could be done in one day but this would involve walking 5 - 6 miles as well as driving around 30 miles between them :

Hambleton Hough is a small hill formed at the end of the last ice age when the retrating glaciers dumped large amounts of sandy material carried from further north. It supports a plantation of Scots Pine and is a good birdwatching site, particularly in winter when Siskins can be seen. The Hough is also home to large numbers of Grey Squirrel

The cache contains all the usual swaps as well as a camera for you to take your photos with. Please leave it in the cache and let me know when it is full. I will get the film developed and post the photos online for you all to see.

NOTE : Anyone who has logged a find at any of the four clue caches before this multi-cache became active can email me and I will send them a photo of the relevant clue
