Long Description:
The waymark coordinates are located at the entrance to All Hallows By the Tower. The waymark location is underground in the Crypt, a fantastic museum that is well worth a visit.

In an alcove near the some war memorials, we spotted a barrel in the corner with a plaque on it. The plaque reads as follows:

"Once the Crow’s Nest used by Sir Ernest Shackleton on his last Antarctic Expedition in the good ship “Quest.” Now brought here by “Tubby” in Quest of “Siller” for Talbot House.

“Winds blow South or winds blow North,
Day come white or night come black.
Home, or rivers and mountains from home.
Singing all time, minding no time.
Walt Whitman"
Type of Waymark: Off Continent Point of Interest
