Geocache Description:

This is the seventh and final cache in a series of caches that will have taken you around the North Shropshire Meres. By now you will be either hooked on these puzzles or never wish to set eyes on one again!

The above coordinates are for the suggested parking, which is a small layby, please do not obstruct the gate. The caches must be done in the order below and each one will involve solving a Sudoku puzzle to be able to obtain the correct coordinates. As you progress through the challenge the puzzles will become more difficult. The difficulty rating relates to the difficulty of the puzzle.

1. A Mere Sudoku Challenge 1 - Blake Mere
2. A Mere Sudoku Challenge 2 - Colemere
3. A Mere Sudoku Challenge 3 - Newton Mere
4. A Mere Sudoku Challenge 4 - White Mere
5. A Mere Sudoku Challenge 5 - Ellesmere
6. A Mere Sudoku Challenge 6 - Hanmer
7. A Mere Sudoku Challenge 7 - Crose Mere

In order to find this cache, you will have had to solve the sudoku puzzle found inside the Hanmer cache, and insert the appropriate figures into the coordinates below:

Cache location at:
N 52° (A5)(B2).(C1)0(D6)
W002° (E1)0.(F8)0(G9)

This cache is a large rectangular Tupperware container containing a logbook and pencil and a few swaps, there is also a reward for the FTF.

Getting to this cache from the suggested parking is a fifteen to twenty minute walk and towards the end can be quite overgrown and very muddy.

I have left a disposable camera inside the cache. Feel free to take a picture of yourselves but please leave the camera in the cache.

The Meres were formed at the end of the last iceage some 12000 years ago and more details can be found at Link
