Geocache Description:


Erosion at work

Besides the magnificent view, these coordinates has another speciality: Situated at the rim some 23m above sea level you can easily reach the position, -it's a simple walk on the road. However in a few years, this may not be the case unless you have wings!! :-)
The little town, 'Nørre Lyngby' is heavily affected by the sea's erosion. Due to numerous storms and the never ending surf, roads which are still on some official maps (and Garmins R&R-CD's) has now been washed away.
As has some nearby houses and an old discontinued graveyard!
Further north, near the little town "Lønstrup" you can visit the abandoned church, "Maarup Kirke" which is sitting just some 30meters from the edge, awaiting its inevitable faith.
Erosion at work.

Foruden den pragtfulde udsigt, har disse koordinater også en anden egenskab: I omkring 23 meters højde kan du via vejen let nå til stedet, men om nogle år er det ikke sikkert det kan lade sig gøre med mindre du har vinger!! :-)
Den lille by 'Nørre Lyngby' er i høj grad påvirket af havets erosion. Adskillige storme og den altid arbejdende brænding, har medført at veje som man idag stadigt kan finde på nogle kort (og også Garmins R&R CD'er), er skyllet væk.Det samme gælder nogle huse i området og sågar en nedlagt kirkegård!
Længere nordpå, tæt på Lønstrup, er det muligt at besøge den forladte 'Maarup Kirke', der kun 20-30 meter fra kanten, afventer sin uungåelige skæbne.
