Geocache Description:


Old A30 Revisited - Summercourt

The A30 is the backbone of Cornwall. Over the years, road 'improvement' schemes have altered its course, bypassing significant sections of the 'old' road. It's surprising how many of these orphaned bits of the old A30 there are in Cornwall.

The trip from Land's End to the county border (Dunheved Bridge), is about 80 miles. Up to 50 miles of which can be travelled using about 18 to 20 sections of the old A30. And I'm sorry to say that I think they have all been bypassed in my lifetime!

June 1995 saw the completion of a seven mile section of dual-carriageway running from Goss Moor to Carland Cross. It bypassed Indian Queens, Fraddon, Summercourt, and Mitchell. Previously, each of those villages was a major bottleneck, especially in the holiday season.

Summercourt Bypass

The Summercourt bypass cuts through the parish of St Enoder, separating Summercourt from its parish church.

The cache is just off the old A30, close to the over bridge between Summercourt and St Enoder. The above picture was taken from the over bridge, near the cache.

You're looking for a small plastic container. If you need it, here is a *spoiler picture* showing the exact position of the cache.

There's a £1 FTF prize. There is limited space for TBs.
