description Description EN

This cache is located near the pretty Cornish harbour of Polkerris. The coordinates listed above are for the village car park & starting point for your search. The car park is "pay & display". You sould be able to locate the cache within an hour but you may wish to stay a bit longer & make use of the pub (the beach cafe is currently being refurbished).
From the car park, walk down hill & collect a series of clues as you go. The first spot you need to find is a street lamp with a wooden Coast Path sign next to it (on a corner). The three digit serial number on the lamppost gives you answers "A,B,C".
The footpath sign shows distances to Par & to Fowey. Add the two distances together, the result is answer "D".
Continue to the Rashleigh Arms and look at the pub sign hanging outside. How many birds are there on the COAT OF ARMS? Answer = "E".
Walk round the beach and along the breakwater. Count the number of large metal rings hanging from the top tier of the wall. This answer = "F".
How many old cannons are embedded in the walkway near the end of the jetty. This final answer = "G".

The cache container is hidden at N50` 20.C(F-A)G W004` 40.BE(D-6) & requires a walk uphill along the cliffpath.

Good luck and enjoy your visit!
