(visited by Phil Sharpe and Dawn Sharpe)

31-Jan-2004 -- Well, fueled by the success of 54N 002W my girlfriend and I decided to visit another two confluences. This one and then on to 52N 003W all in one day and this time without the company of "The Aussies"! We set of from Leicester early morning and arrived in the nice village of 'Alderton' just east of 'Tewkesbury about an hour and a half later.

The Confluence Point itself was easy enough to get to on foot, just in the fields behind the village. There was a marked footpath between the houses which lead a short distance through a little field with two houses in and on into the main field where the C.P. is.

The weather was not brilliant, quite windy and rainy so we didn't hang around. The exact spot is very close to the fields northern boundary fence and the view south is of the back of the village from which we had just walked. The photos were taken with a new 35mm Compact Camera and unfortunately the all important GPS picture turned out blurred, so you will have to take my word when I tell you that we did get "all zeros"! Accuracy 9ft.

On the way back to the car I showed Dawn that horses love 'Polo Mints' and fed them the last of my pack! A short walk up the road from where the footpath starts is a really nice pub called the Gardeners Arms where we had a quick drink (soft) and a packet of crisps before setting of for our next Confluence Point.
