Caches No’s 3577,3578 & 3579 – Three Survey Monuments

I’d had to go down to Wychbold (about half way between Birmingham and Worcester and as I was driving home I had about an hour or so of daylight left, so thought I would grab a few of the local YOSM’s – one to the north of Birmingham in Sutton Coldfield and and two on Cannock Chase.

Sometimes these rivets on roadside verges are hard to find as they gradually get sunk as the soil and vegetation rises round them, but this one is still on the surface

A pillar just a few yards from the roadside, but the speed bumps on the road to it are both far too numerous and far too large, I think the Chase authorities are trying to damage cars rather than prevent them speeding

Parked as near as I could to the pillar which was a mistake as that meant I had to cross the road and go through either a very muddy path or a gorse and bramble thicket to get to the pillar – I did one on the way there and the other on the way back – there was a convenient car park with a nice clear path to the cache a hundred yards further up the road
