description Description EN

This cache is hidden at the point where Lerryn Creek flows into the River Fowey. There are views down the river to Golant & Number 8 Jetty at Fowey Docks. There is also an interesting old boat house on the far bank of the river.

You can park at Lerryn & follow the path along the north side of the creek. Alternatively, park by St Winnow Church. Go through the churchyard to a little gate at the far side, head down to the slipway & walk left along the foreshore, join a woodland path further along.

The cache is a 1 litre box. It`s a bit of a scramble down from the bench on the track, there are quite a few logs to clamber over. The cache is almost at the bottom of the slope!

Enjoy your walk!

*Note - This cache contains a "Munzee", a laminated bar code fixed inside the lid. It`s part of another treasure hunt game, please don`t remove it.
