Geocache Description:

Formerly known as "Sussex Trig Points #2 - Erringham Hill" until 14/4/24. A series based on trig points in Sussex. There were at least 165 originally, this series will grow as I attempt to discover each - this may take some time! You can also log your trig find at where you will find a plethora of information and statistics about trigs.

Erringham Hill is private farmland. However, adjacent is the Mill Hill Nature Reserve. Please note that the chalk paths can get slippery when wet.

Things to see: Unimproved species rich chalk grassland, scrub, mature scrub and secondary woodland. One of the best butterfly sites in Sussex with over 29 species recorded. Chalk grassland is part of a Sussex habitat Action Plan and Mill Hill has over 160 recorded species of flowering plants and up to 30 recorded species per metre. The reserve has spectacular views over the River Adur, over surrounding downland and south out to sea. Butterflies include Adonis Blue. The reserve is noted for its display of yellow horseshoe vetch in spring, visible for miles.

Stage 1: N 50.51.323 W 000 16.832
Unfortunatley this is as near as you can get to the trig without ducking the barbed wire and crossing the cow pasture. Note the dates on the bench.

Stage 2: The cache was small clip box but is now a micro and is hidden at:
N 50.51.CAD W 000 16.B(H+4)E

About Ye Ole Survey Monuments

Ye Ole Survey Monument (YOSM) is a captivating series of caches that pays homage to the remarkable legacy of OutForTheHunt's YSM series (GC45CC).

YOSM caches are strategically positioned at or near Trig Points. These triangulation stations have played a pivotal role as surveying landmarks, contributing to the mapping of expansive territories.

Some of these points, bearing historical significance, might now be situated on private land or have vanished with time. As a result, the caches are artfully placed in close proximity, reverently acknowledging the historical importance of these survey monuments.

More information, bookmarks and statistics can be found at the YOSM Website

If anybody would like to expand the Ye Ole Survey Monuments Series, please do.
I would ask that you request a number for your cache first at
so we can keep track of the numbers and names to avoid duplication.
