This is the location of one of the oldest, but now archived, caches in the U.K. and we thought that such a great cache location deserved to be preserved.

Originally hidden by Street Pilot on 24th August 2001.

This is one of the most spectacular locations in the Isles of Scilly.  Try to come on a sunny, windy day at high tide and you can watch the sea breaking over Shipman Head.

Over the centuries many ships have been wrecked below you.

Large areas of the Isles of Scilly are SSSIs, including Shipman Down.  Finding the cache will not require you to disturb any vegetation or rocks and it is a few metres from the coast path.  Please litter pick if you find any rare detritus (actually, quite common on the shore after a storm).
