This is a multicache starting from the Queen’s Head pub, situated in the village of Meriden. The pub is an old coaching inn, built on the original “Old Road” from London to Holyhead. The above coordinates are for a suitable parking location.
Meriden is often claimed to be at the centre of England, denoted by a medieval cross on the village green. Here also is the National Cyclist’s Memorial, commemorating cyclists who died in both World Wars.
There are two parts to this multicache, a virtual and a micro.
1. Leaving the pub, cross the old road and climb the steps. Take care crossing the main road at the top of the steps. Ahead is the start of a footpath, heading in the general direction of the first location at N 52 25.923 W 001 37.844. Here count the number of lamps illuminating the church gate (a), the number of steps to reach the top of the horse-mounting block (b), and the number of stone pillars on the first grassed area beyond the steps (c).
2. Following the path, locate the micro-cache (35mm film canister) at:
N 52 25.((b*c)-a)(a)(2*c) W 001 38.(5-b)09.
The cache contains just a log. It also includes coordinates for a second multicache (Ram Pump Walk 21 - GCP1D6), which can found by continuing your walk, then returning by a circular route to the Queen's Head.
This continues the series of caches created by ‘A Coventry Way Association’. The association was originally formed to promote a long distance footpath, A Coventry Way, and to support local authorities in the path’s maintenance. Our primary aim was to encourage people to discover and use the local countryside. A book of 21 Circular Walks was produced, broadly based on the main walk. Our plan is to set out a series of caches, located on or near each of the 21 walks. See (visit link) for further information.
