Geocache Description:

Set within two miles of the given co-ords with help from The National Trust in the Ashridge Estate to celebrate GC18BC, the Oldest Puzzle Cache in the UK, as part of the 2016 Geolympix Legacy.

Hidden close(ish) to this cache's given coords on 25th August 2001 (a Saturday) was GC18BC - Tim's Number 2 - The Second Attempt. It survives as the UK's oldest remaining Puzzle cache. To find that one, first find GC177 and follow the instructions you'll find in that box.

However, to find *this* cache, you just have to look either side of it. Good luck!
