On 21st May 2008, the day the algorithm was published, the geohash for Carlisle using the original algorithm was a spot on the coast near Silverdale at 54.179467°, -2.861537°.

While Google maps shows this as being on land, it is actually in the treacherous sands of Morecambe Bay. The closest accessible location was a beach near small caravan park, visible on the aerial view.
