This is a puzzle cache, you will get nuffin at these co-ordinates apart from an establishment which , one way or another, might help ...

suspiciously empty space ps9

When Splendidz mentioned her 10th 'cachiversary' would soon occur, it seemed only right to mark it in some way, and as I'm not the intrepid tree climber, bridge dangler or boat paddling cache setter type, it had to be a puzzle. Maybe with a little cross country run training on the way to it

But what to base it on that would have at least some connection to (intrepi)Didz ? Horses perhaps ?

Binky ? Shadowfax ? Boris the Lipizzaner ? There's a 'Country Life' list ranking the 50 most famous horses ...Milton, Red Rum, ... nah, too easy ... I can't plant a quiet snare there to throw the genius off in the wrong direction .
Market Harborough then ? Some time ago I tripped over a quote from someone whose navigational ability was like mine. He sent a message home from the railway station:
"Am in Market Harborough. Where ought I to be?"

That would be a good cache name for a wheirigo ... maybe I should do a wherigo instead ....

In the end I chose to borrow a colourful convention from a certain rodent and went with this :

N 52 XX.XXX W000 XX.9XX

”ps

Congratulations Didz, hope you enjoy the puzzle !
