(visited by Ross Finlayson)

26-Jul-2018 -- After having visited hundreds of Degree Confluence Points, I was pleased to finally get to visit one on the Greenwich Meridian. This point lies just off a narrow paved country road, near the northern end of a horse farm, close to the E70 autoroute. A wooden marker notes the significance of this point.

Three years ago, I visited [45,-120] in Oregon, USA - halfway between the Equator and the North Pole, and 1/3 of the way around the world from the Greenwich Meridian. At the time, I noted that there were only four other Degree Confluence Points on land that rivaled it in significance. Now that I’ve visited this point, that leaves three more to visit: the South Pole, and the (still unvisited by anyone) points [0,120] (in Indonesia) and [45,120] (in China).

Here is a remote-controlled aerial video of this confluence point.
