Geocache Description:

Onwards to Crisis Point! The 6th cache in the series is on top of a hill with an obelisk on, West of Newport in Lilleshall.

This is the sixth in a set of seven caches in the “Road to the Wrekin” series. The first 6 caches are just off the A518, which runs from Uttoxeter to Telford through Staffordshire and Shropshire.

  1. The Urn
  2. Any Fort In A Storm
  3. Tunnel Vision
  4. Broad Hill Revisited
  5. Aqualate Mere
  6. Crisis Point*
  7. Wrekin Havoc!

Can you complete all seven in a day?!

The cache is an now a regular sized lock 'n' lock box in a camo bag (it used to be an ammo box) and is hidden on the side of the hill. There are many ways to get up the hill, it's up to you which one you choose. There are some great views to be had here all day but I expect sunset will be the best.

Original contents of cache:
5x Blank postcards
Tom Holt Book
Taz Toy
Top trumps card

Be careful no-one sees you when you are filling in the logbook and good luck,

Archive this cache!
