Geocache Description:

Suggested parking The Pavilion ST 29810 43053

The cache is near to the old B.P. wharf on the banks of the River Parrett. Ships brought refined oil products from South Wales for distribution in the southwest. The terminal once stood where the car auctions are today but was closed in 1984. Looking south (168deg) from the cache can be seen the chimney of the old cellophane works, a pipeline ran from there to this terminal carrying oil products from which cellophane was made.From this point the BORE(times below) can seen on tides over 3.7M about two and a half hours before high tide at Bridgwater.St Mary's church spire in Bridgwater can be seen at 189 deg. Once a year the MV Balmoral used to visits Dunball Wharf for a Bristol Channel sailing but that has now ceased.
From the suggested parking place to the cache (after walking to river) you will have passed where there was once two wharves. In the 16th and 17th centuries’ wine, coal and timber were landed.
Brick making was also carried out here 1810 until 1894. Five workers cottages still stand today and an angling club now uses the clay pits. The estimated times of possible a BORE in 2016 are as follows
