Geocache Description:



Please note that the above coordinates are for the nearby off road parking and not the cache its self.

You will need to work out the cache coordinates before heading out to do this cache.
Some of the route to the cache will take you off the track way and over rough ground.

On the 26th of August 1987 a Phantom F6-J from the 74 Tiger Squadron flew into the ground on a low level training flight just below the cache site.
You can also walk the short distance up to the Trig Point where on a clear day you will be rewarded with even more brilliant views.

A little ghost story from the greet Tin-ter-web

The A44 road from Aberystwyth to Llangurig passes Pumlumon mountain, and on more than one occasion motorists have reported seeing a WW2 bomber flying silently above them, about 15 – 20 feet off the ground near Eisteddfa Gurig farm. One such person, Paul Jay saw the bomber and was expecting to see a crash in his rear view mirror, but there was no crash and no sound at all. A week later Mr Jay was watching Foyle’s War on ITV and saw the exact same footage that had been played out above the A44 as he drove past the week before. Looking into this further he was amazed to find that Foyle’s War had used actual archive footage in the programme, and that the scenes on the television had been real. In fact, on the walk from Eisteddfa Gurig farm up the mountain you pass an old mine working. Lying next to these mine workings is the wreckage of an old WW2 bomber, the very same bomber plane seen in the Foyle’s War footage.
