EAST 000.04.CDE
The waypoint is for the village green decode the one above for the final point location.


The Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin is clearly visible from a distance as you approach the town of Westerham and nestles behind the north-east corner of the Green. The earliest parts of the present building date from the 14th century The Church registers record the baptism of General James Wolfe (who was born in the Old Vicarage) and three of Sir Winston Churchill's grandchildren in this same font.
Chartwell was the family home of Sir Winston Churchill from 1924 until his death in 1965. It was the spectacular view over The Weald and the South Downs that Churchill loved about the house.
The fine fourteenth century spiral staircase is one of only two of this age to turn unusually to the left.
First of all you need to find the village green should not be to hard now look at the statue of General James Wolfe Find the reference to his death and subtract the day of the month away from the year this gives you a four digit number use the last digit to give you A
???A Now add the year of birth to the year of death this also gives you a four digit number Use the 3rd number
??B?
Now let’s let him rest…. Look for another statue near by that looks like chocolate Yes it’s Churchill Look for the date 1874-19DE
Now for the last digit Look to the row of shops and restaurants one of them is called the Little Grasshopper out side is a small plaque find it and subtract the first year 1086 away from the other years shown You will end up with a 3 digit number
C67 All done now head off to find the cache you will not need to leave the path to find it You are looking for a 35 mm film canister hidden beneath a giant tree Enjoy the cache and good luck The cache can be sought by anybody
