Found it colincactus found All About a Challenge #11 – A Building Bounty

Saturday, February 4, 2017South East England, United Kingdom

When I first noticed this challenge I was six short. I did a search for the buildings that were missing and most seemed a long way from home. So I decided to identify the best potential caches and ensure that I picked them up whenever I was close by. This took me to some interesting places in London and Brighton in particular that I wouldn't have been to otherwise. I finally completed the challenge just before Christmas.

The checker didn't work for me as it seems to have a problem with "houses". It decided to count "The Palace of Westminster (Houses of Parliament)" as a "house" rather than a "palace". I haven't found any other palaces but I have plenty of other houses - so I've swapped in one of those instead. Here is my list of 25 buildings:

I decided to go to Camberley to collect the cache this morning. No problems finding it. A great challenge - well worth a favourite.

infoA Mystery Cache is the “catch-all” of cache types, this form of cache can involve complicated puzzles you will first need to solve to determine the coordinates. The only commonality of this cache type is that the coordinates listed are not of the actual cache location but a general reference point, such as a nearby parking location. Due to the increasing creativity of geocaching this becomes the staging ground for new and unique challenges.
