Geocache Description:

This is the second in a series of caches with a difference, where the co-ordinates are given in coded numerical format.

There are six caches in this series, the first five of these have the co-ordinates shown in code. The code for each cache is different and they vary in difficulty but can be cracked with logic and maths before leaving home. Each of these first five also contain one part of a five part pass code either in the form of a laminated card or a label inside the back of the logbook, this gives one character and it's position in the pass code.
When you have all five parts of the pass code please email it to us and we will then email you the uncoded co-ordinates for the sixth cache. Inside this are the usual goodies but instead of "Found It" cards there are certificates of achievement for the finders who have cracked all the codes and found the first five caches.

The Third Alternative cache is a "Cache and Dash" and involves no walking, merely parking at the roadside and finding the cache which is a small rectangular "clip top" plastic box inside a plastic bag and contains a few small items and a log book. The clue to the pass code is in the back of this.

The co-ordinates given are for "The Hangman's Stone" from which this road gains its name.

The co-ordinates for the cache can be found from: -

N(27)(15)o (18)(30).(21)(18)(39) W(12)(12)(9)o (12)(15).(21)(21)(30)

The other five caches in this series are: -

Double the Fun
The Fourth Square
The Fifth Dimension
The Rule of Seven
The Final Countdown
