Geocache Description:

Clip lock pot with room for swops.

Trevose Head Trig Point is registered as TP0330. Cache is placed on the South West Coastal Footpath close to the Trig Point itself.

There is nearby parking at the National Trust car park at the end of the road on the headland above Stinking Cove. When I was a child the headland was farmed and during the summer season, an old lady and her sister collected parking fees in the farm yard. The lighthouse was staffed by keepers, who were happy to show visitors around and their families lived in the adjacent cottages. The lighthouse is now automatic and the staff cottages are extended and holiday lets.

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.
