Is it the 'worst' in England?

N52° 03.364 W2° 45.670

No prizes, just for fun.

Also for the adventurous, can you find similarly bad places in Wales, Scotland, Ireland and therefore British Isles?

Is it the place with the least number of caches (none) in a certain radius?

MarcB

There certainly isn`t a huge amount of caches around there is there.... (Note: Don`t got to Hereford on a caching trip).

Pengy

Is it because everyone thinks they are in the SAS and are "Dead hard"

Edited by Deego

Is it because there is 'Ruckhall' around there? (zoom out and you will see what I mean!).

I'll go with MarcB's answer. Can't find anywhere worse. I had an inkling there might be somewhere in Lincolnshire, but they seem to be building up a little now.

Stu

something to do with everyone including Boudica being wiped out?

I think MarkB is on to it - but would have put it as the point furthest from a geocache.

I don't think it can be the point furthest from a cache in England as the nearest one is 15.3 miles North and 16 miles to the South. So a point a little further south would be more 'remote' - maybe? Anyway, there must be lonely corners of the fens more than 15.3 miles from a cache. My bet goes to it being the point furthest, on average, from every cache in England. Wild guess

Update: Doing a little research, the centre of England, based on the 'Gravitational Method' (if England was a cardboard cut-out, where would the point at which it'd balance on a pen tip be) is said to be a small farm near the town of Fenny Drayton in Leicestershire. Or, for the traditionalist, Meriden - where there's a monument saying it's the centre of England. Either way it's a LONG WAY away from the spot given above. Unless there's a huge shortage of caches in one area the cache-centre and the geographic-centre of England should be within a few dozen miles, at least. So, I have to say I think MarcB got it right first time.

Next question, of course, is: Does nobody in Hereford have a GPS?

Do you get dispatched by the SAS as soon as you try to place a cache within 15 miles?

What's the deal?

I would have thought that This is the most EVIL place ?

check the long / lat co-ords ( decimal )

Its not in the middle of a sewage works, in particular a processing plant ?

If so, is special equiment needed in order to retrieve the box that will soon be placed there ?

It's not where you live, is it Rutson?!

Nah, can't be - there's not a 5* in sight...

Now I now how "The only gay in the village" feels. Leave Hereford alone,I know were VERY short of caches but I do hope to rectify this soon I've printed off all the paperwork I think I'll need for the Forestry Commision and Nature Trust and its looking hopeful for one of my local landowners. By the way what is wrong with Brienton church or springs?

Is it all the sixes in the multimap url?

The answer I was looking for was that after about 10 minutes of searching, this seems to close to the point in England such that it is furthest from the nearest cache. It is not exact, and there maybe somewhere better, but I can't find it!

Eeh, that's nothing. You think you've got it tough ? Try looking around

Now if that doesn't make me the only gay in the village, I don't know what does

I recon it doesn't get much worse than THIS

That should be X rated!!

That should be X rated!!

And so should this!

So should N53.33.190 W002.22.745.

So should N53.33.190 W002.22.745.

Now if that isn't a candidate for one of Simply Pauls Puerile photo caches I dont know what is!

A bit more tweaking, and I reckon this is it

52°03.284'N, 2°45.714'W

15.3 miles away from it's nearest active cache. Anyone beat that?

I did a cache near HERE a couple of years ago!

One of my best mates lives at

52:03:29N 2:43:50W

That's White Cross in the first mao.

Not been to visit since.

I can beat my previous record: 97.2km in each of two directions to the nearest cache from here. And only 28 caches within the 100 mile "limit". Huh. France eh ?

Compare that with the 73 caches within 100 miles of this one... which is in Saudi Arabia, for crying out loud !!
