Geocache Description:

A drive by.

Various places around Hexhamshire have links with the 1715 Jacobite Rising; some being cited as places where the Earl took refuge when government agents were on his trail. At one stage the Earl is supposed to have escaped capture by hiding in a cave at Shafto Crags in the vicinity of Capheaton and Wallington. Between Dilston and Nunsbrough, some holly bushes on the roadside are noted as having been used by Jacobite families as a ‘post-office’ when the Earl and other leaders were in hiding. The messages left beneath the holly bushes were conveyed between the rebels by the young women of the families who rode around Northumberland, acting as couriers.

Our ‘post box’ is not beneath a holly bush but lies quite close to one and is almost at ground level. Here you can pick up the log, post your note and replace awaiting the next visitor and thus replicating history.
