Cache No. 4535 – The Devil’s Frying Pan

Frying Pan Rock is part of a rock outcrop on top of the Chevin overlooking Otley.
As I can see the rock from my window at home it is perhaps a little remiss of me not to have visited the top of the Chevin in the last year since the virtual was placed.

1st September 2018 – The Devil’s Frying Pan GC7B7PE – cache #4535
A curious thing is that I have lived in Otley for over 50 years and have never heard the rock referred to locally as anything but ‘Frying Pan Rock’ (no mention of the Devil)
I know (knew) people who had their ashed scattered from the rock when they died – and other people who intend to have it done when they pass on !

I can put my finger on where I live from the rock – as the photograph shows
