Geocache Description:

An easy walk with a gentle gradient of around a mile in total with the most stunning views on a clear day.

This cache gets its name because Admiral Horatio Nelson and Lady Emma Hamilton had breakfast here at the roundhouse whilst visiting the neighbouring Naval Temple in 1802.
The co-ordinates above are for the car park only. The car park gates are closed at dusk but there is access to the area 24/7 via footpaths.

At the co-ordinates N51 48.515 W002 41.187 find the plaque which gives the date when HRH The Princess Margaret Inaugurated the reconstruction of this monument and replace the letters with numbers where appropriate 2Ath JULY 1BAC

Now go to admire the view from N51 48.554 W002 41.196 and answer a couple of questions from the plaque/information board there
