(visited by Gordon Spence)

15-Dec-2011 -- Told you that I'd be back soon, it's been 30 days and I am back in the area again.

I am approaching this from the North (coming from the Chester area) and so to make the journey a bit more interesting I have set the sat-nav to "shortest" instead of "quickest".

That's how I came to be driving through Erddig Estate built in the 1680's and set in 1200 acres of grounds. Things you never knew, and the closest part of the estate to the CP is just exactly 1 mile.

Park up, and as again I don't have my trusty GPSMap 76CSx with me I am forced to use my in car device instead. As you can see, I got to the exact spot, well as exact as you can anyway.

The view East shows an interested specator, while the view North-West shows a house, lying just 53 yards from the CP. Imagine completing a visit just by arriving home each day. A bit like this one really - 27N-82W.

Likelihood the gap to my next visit here will be even shorter.
