Britains Lowest Geocache?

Okay, so we all know where Britain's highest Geocache is (Ben Nevis summit), but I was wondering where the lowest is?

 

Dunno, but the lowest (land) point in GB is in the area S and/or E of Peterborough. Flag Fen, or Holme Fen possible - they're both several metres b.s.l.

 

Any cache around the Bedford Levels has got to be a candidate... :ph34r:

The Holme Fen Posts are already used as a waypoint for this cache. Strange place that.... I got a distinct sinking feeling just standing there :lol::lol:

Have asked Ordnance Survey where the lowest points in the UK are, shall post the results when i get them.

Here they are now if someone (else) :ph34r: can do the searching that would be great

I can confirm the following regarding the lowest point in Great Britain:

 

The lowest point in Great Britain is believed to be at Holme Fen in Cambridgeshire - Grid Reference TL 202 893.
