Solve the puzzle below to find the real location
Cache is at N 52 3X.XXX W 001 0X.XXX

Cows, heifers, placid dairy ladies, scary looking bulls, hooligan bullocks, nervously protective mums with calves ... cachers who like a good country walk can't avoid all manner of cattle out in the fields* when the grass is growing. Some love them, some are terrified of them, most of us are suitably wary : after all, even the most amiable average sized cow is a 500 to 800kg lump of animal, and 800kg is roughly the same as a Smart car ( a medium sized bull is nearer the mass of a Mini ) You really don't want to get in a disagreement with that.

So, the walk to this puzzle's final location is guaranteed totally cow free,
no bovines to be negotiated, no cow pats en route.
Mind you, once at GZ things may be different ...
*It's perfectly legal in England to have a non-dairy breed bull in a field crossed by a public right of way as long as the big guy has a harem with him, seeĀ this for details.
I was fascinated to find farmers are obliged to keep a detailed register listing each individual beast , including age, breed etc... and I couldn't help but imagine the register being called out at the start of the day... "Buttercup ?" Moo! "Daisy ? " Moo ! "Ermintrude? "
... silence ....
"Ermintrude's not late for milking again is she ? Tut tut. Detention for her !"
