Pretty quick cache in Point Pleasant Park - Halifax, NS.
In 1792, the threat of an immediate French attack alerted the British military in Halifax to the possibility of a landing in the harbour and, that summer, batteries were built on the point. For the next thirty years, the Point Pleasant forts formed the first line of the Halifax Harbour defences.
In 1796-97, Edward, Duke of Kent, ordered construction of a Martello tower to be built on high ground behind the point, a location capable of defending the point batteries. The Prince of Wales Tower, named after Edward's eldest brother, is a squat, round structure built of stone, almost three times as wide as it is high.
I spent a few summers here working with Shakespere by the sea...Especially in this tower where a production of "Titus Andronicus" was put on. Great memories! This cache is located just off of some of Point Pleasants great trails, close to the tower it self. Cache is a pretty quick find. Watch out for Muggles! Very High risk of being seen!
