  45°N 5°E (visit #11)  

#1: Fenced area of CP 45N 5E at a distance of 53 m

(visited by Thomas Barthel)

25-Jul-2018 -- During the summer holidays direction Pyrenees I had the chance to visit some confluence points. On the way back to Germany I visited the confluence 45°N 5°E.

After we had driven around the city Valence on the road N7 we took the road N532 direction NW. Around 7 km later the nearer area of the CP 45N 5E was reached. It is a kind of service area for transportation with a hotel and picnic places nearby. It was not so easy to find the correct way through the two roundabouts, each one with five exits. In the end I found the road to the plot with the confluence on it. It is owned by an automobile service company and surrounded by a white fence, which is known from former visits. But the rest changed. The building was partly renewed and the ground was surfaced with bright chippings. Later I could see the dog - it changed as well, compared with the one from the visit of 2013.

The gate was wide open, so I went in and called for somebody. A young man came out of the office and I explained him my suggestion. He was interested in the DCP and let me through the building to the backyard. There I found the exact location quite fast and took the necessary pictures. On the picture of the view west you can recognise the place on the wall, of the removed name from the previous company. It was the wish of the man to blur the number plates of the cars. While leaving the courtyard I took the picture of the barking dog.
