Geocache Description:

This is part of a multi cache each loggable in their own right taking you to one final location

THE MONEY PIT
There are many kistaevns on Dartmoor these are burial places where the dead or their ashes were interned.

It is an oblong pit with stones on each side and a large flat stone slab on top they are known to date back to the Bronze Age One such place is the money pit just down from yar tor This was broken into one night by a very friendly farmer who had had a dream telling him there was money hidden here taking it as a divine omen next morning dashing out he broke into but alas there was no money only a heart shaped flint which he took. From that day onwards he underwent a radical personality change becoming mean and bitter and lost all his friends, one day about a year later his son found the heart shaped flint and took it outside to play with where he promptly lost it. The very same day the farmer went back to being his old self and it was soon obvious what caused the change or it this just a nice story to deter people from digging up ancient graves The given co –ords are for the cache itself, but you can walk past the money pit at N50 32.976 W003 51.722 On your way

Each cache contains a part co-ordinate for the bonus cache which is a good size ammo box. As well as the co-ords you will find a single number in red in four of the caches you will need these later. You will need to bring a pen/cil for the logs
