(visited by Gordon Spence)

30-Jun-2010 -- This is the latest that I have done a confluence visit, leaving the point at 9.53pm. The camera makes it appear to be brighter than it actually was.

I was on my way home, passing by Royston which is but a few short miles from here. I set the SatNav to 52N-00 and interestingly it thought I could drive there. Perhaps with a Land Rover that may be possible...

Park up by the bridleway and enjoy the late summer evening as I stroll to the point. It has been very hot here in the UK the last few days and it is very warm & muggy.

As I had brought my compass with me, you can clearly see that the tractor track is directly N-S. The ground cover shot shows that the cracking due to lack of rain has clearly got worse in the last month.
