(visited by Gordon Spence)

17-Oct-2007 -- I've not been to this one for a while and I was passing with a "few" miles of it, well about 15 or so but close enough to warrant a detour. Especially as I haven't visited this point before with a WAAS enabled unit.

Park up in the little side road or entrance to the water company facility and put on my wellies as it has been very wet and I know that it is in the corner of the field.

Walk up to the drainage ditch, turn right and towards the CP. I notice that they have dredged the drainage ditch and put the spoil at the edge of the field.

Carefully walk out to the spot, take the cardinal photo's and then as I have now read the manual for the GPS76 put it into averaging mode. 193 readings later and I have the accuracy nailed to less than 7 feet.

Back to the car and on to the local rail station which has had some of the rustic quaint parts preserved.
