(visited by Karl Bryk and Tom Hyland)

01-Aug-2023 -- This is the 6th of 6 CP visits made during a 9 week trip to Sweden and England.

The prevoius is N52 E02.

After a pleasant evening and morning spent in Coventry it was time to drive to Nottingham to visit an old school friend who happened to live near to this CP. I had mentioned this CP to him on a previous visit to Blighty but expected it to go in one ear and out the other. To my surprise when I asked about visiting, he mentioned the 'special point' and was willing to go and visit it. It was about 12 miles from his home.

We parked off the A6079 (N53.001679, W0.996709) approximately 250m from the CP. We headed for the CP and walked along a hedge with lots of brambles. The closest we could get was about 20m so we carried along the hedge until we found a way through and walked back to the CP. Taking the photos took a bit longer than usual as I told Tom about the confluence dance and he insisted we get all zeroes.

We took a shorter route back to the car, shorter but with more nettles and brambles. Another successful visit and the first for Tom.

The first of many ?
