.o0O POV -II- Friars Point of View O0o.
This is the second in a series of three POV (Point of View) Caches on Barry Island.
We highly recommend doing all three Caches in this series in one go, as this makes a lovely walk taking in headland and seafront across the Island. It would be very easy to make a day-trip of this, Caching along the way while enjoying time at the Beach, on the rides and taking in breathtaking scenary along the headland.
POV -I- Nell's Point of View
Takes in a beautiful piece of headland overlooking the seafront on Barry Island.
POV -II- Friars Point of View
A short walk across the seafront from POV -I- and takes in another nice piece of headland on the Island overlooking Barry Harbour.
POV -III- A Quick Knap
A short way from POV -II- this can be accessed across Barry Harbour when the tide is out (a great walk among the boats, being careful to stay on the drier and firmer areas of sand), or across the causeway if the tide is in. This one can alternatively be done individually as a Cache 'n Dash if you wish, with limited parking available along the front of the Knap.
The series can be done in any order, but it is highly recommended to park at the top of the Island among the new housing development on Nell's Point, and then proceed to do I, II and III in order.
However, there is some parking along the seafront to directly access this one if done separately. This is limited to an hour or two and is very limited at peak times!
The Cache is a small tupperware container containing logbook, pencil, pen and a few other bits and pieces.
As this is a popular area with the general public, please try to ensure the Cache is rehidden exactly as you found it, making sure it is well out of sight. Thanks!
Care should be taken in this area, especially if Caching with kids.
The co-ordinates have recently been updated to take you closer to the spot, which is not in the ruin itself.
POV -II- views:
Cache In Trash Out
It seems these areas are prime spots for litter unfortunately, and although there are dedicated Litter-pickers along some of these stretches, they often don't quite get to those crevices that us Geocachers poke around in, so if you do happen to bring a bag, it would be great to 'Cache In and Trash Out' while you're there!
