Geocache Description:

Formerly known as "Sussex Trig Points #3 - Thunders Barrow" 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.

The trig is situated within the National Trust managed Southwick Hill. There was a settlement at nearby Thunders Barrow from the early Iron Age to the end of the Romano-British period, the defeat of the Romano-British by Aelle's invading Saxons at nearby Slonk Hill may have had something to do with it. There are extensive earthworks and lynchets in the area with the settlement providing one of a number of forts that stretched across the Downs at this period. In 1996 the 500 metre long twin-bore tunnels opened, taking the A27 under Southwick Hill.

Stage 1: Visit the trig and note the number on the flush bracket.

Stage 2: The cache is hidden at:
N 50.51.A(B+2)(C-1) W 000 14.(A+4)(B+6)(C+3)

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.
