24-May-2010 -- Back again! Passing this way on the way to somewhere else and thought why not? Besides we have to make sure this keeps it's place as the most visited spot on the planet don't we :-)

Park up at the edge of the bridleway, on with the boots and set off towards the CP. It's a nice stroll in and the weather is warm (still!). I briefly stop at the entrance to the path and turn and look back at the way I came in.

Walk along the path through the trees and encroaching undergrowth, then pop through the gap to the edge of the field. From here you get a good view of the general area, and also the tractor tracks that you can walk along and get to within 2 yards of the CP.

Click off the required pictures, noting that the tractor seems to have drifted away from the Prime Meridian this year and also that it is extremely dry here. Back to the car and off down to Kent.
