Geocache Description:

This cache is close to one of the earliest messages concerning drinking and driving...the Mail Coach Pillar also known as the Coachman's Cautionary. At this spot in 1835 the Gloucester & Carmarthen mail coach was being driven by Edward Jenkins on the 19th December, who was intoxicated at the time and was driving the coach on the wrong side of the road at full speed, when he met a cart coming in the other direction. The coach plunged 121' down the precipice and was dashed to pieces near the river.The cache container is a 5/6" high cylindrical pill box, so smallish things only can be exchanged. The co-ords are only accurate to within 99' due to tree cover but we do not think that it is going to matter very much in this case. Please be careful whilst looking for this cache.
