Geocache Description:


The ninth in a series of caches located on or close to the Sandstone Trail.

The Sandstone Trail is a long distance trail running 32 miles from Frodsham to Whitchurch. This cache is located just below the trigpoint on Rawhead which is the highest point on the trail at 227 metres (746ft in real measurement).

The best place to park is by the telephone kiosk at N53 04.730 W002 43.628 by Gallantry Bank. This is on a minor road on the Bickerton side of the A534. There is nowhere convenient to park on the Rawhead side of the A534. This is the same parking as used for Rhododendrons and Sandstone and the walk will take you past this cache. There is closer parking up New Lane which is a dead end on the other side of the hill but we would ask that cachers do not park along this narrow lane. It is a stiff climb from Gallantry Bank but the walk will do you good!

This area will be familiar to some cachers as there used to be a cache called Rawhead hidden very close by. There has been a lot of tree clearance in the area recently and the views have opened up considerably.

The co-ordinates are an average taken over a couple of visits. The cache is a tupperware container in a camouflage bag. Please make sure that the cache is properly concealed when you replace it so that it is not noticeable to inquisitive explorers.

This cache is located on a GeoHike.
