Geocache Description:


This is a 2 stage multi cache with parking available very near.

Patrick Brompton War Memorial is in the churchyard of St. Patrick near the outer wall at the side of the main road. The Memorial was restored in 2022; and the inscriptions face the Church. There is an adjacent wall stile

The memorial is a simple stone obelisk with a carved laurel wreath near its top. It stands on a stone plinth and commemorates 10 names from the First World War. It is dedicated :-

TO THE GLORIOUS DEAD WHO REST

IN THE DEEP SEA AND IN MANY LANDS

HAVING GIVEN THEIR LIVES THAT

WE MAY LIVE IN FREEDOM AND IN PEACE

1914-1918

The plinth carries the names of the 10 men from here who fell in the First World War

The co-ordinates bring you to the memorial and by using the inscription and names of those commemorated you can work out the co-ordinates for the final cache location as follows :-

C = number of letters in Arthur's surname
