martlakes: Checked on this one and it's gone.
Not an easy place to get a good hide despite it looking like lots of potential. It changes in different seasons and the highest tides preclude most of the rock embankment.
So, with regret, as the view is still lovely and it's a nice place to pause for a moment and enjoy the water and hills, we're going to archive this.
Lots more caches out there to find!

Geocache Description:

Five-ninety Fun!  Best done Ulverston (west) bound.  Layby after bends, just before Greenodd dual-carriageway.  Great views.

Part of a series along the A590 - see bookmark list.  This is very much a drive-by and the layby can suffer from litter, however, I really like the view across the large sweeping bend in the river/estuary towards Lady Syke, Ellerside, and Backbarrow gorge.  I quite often stop in this layby for a quick break and to admire the view.  Sometimes the channel is very full of water on a big tide.  Other times the sun is dancing acorss the wooded hills and reflecting off the channels, while various birds look for food in the mud banks.  As spring advances the woods leap into colour and change again in the autumn.  Whatever the season or the weather, the view is always worth a look.  It is possible to stretch the legs via a stile onto the shore bank.

The cache is the usual type of nano after a creative hide failed to survive.   Be gentle removing the log and you will need a pen.  You don't need to scuffle about in any rubbish.
Enjoy the view.  For a higher vantage point, check out nearby Greenodd View.
