A small lock top box hidden within view of Grim's grave.
Grim's grave is probably a bronze age burial structure. There's a central burial hole which is flanked by nine 'kerb' stones, the covering stone has been smashed, probably by tomb raiders looking for something of value.
There's a recent story which I particularly like which says that in the 1970's, Grim's Grave was the meeting place for a coven of witches from Plymouth. One of their rituals coincided with a night exercise held by the Royal Marines who crept unseen upon them. Once the soldiers became bored of watching the naked women frolicking around the huge fire they managed to lob a couple of thunder-flashes into the flames. The resulting explosions sent the 'weird sisters' into hysterics as they probably thought the 'Dark One' was about to ascend into their midst.
