#1: The extremely well-documented confluence

(visited by Terje Mathisen, Tone Norløff and Fredrik Norløff-Mathisen)

31-Jul-2007 -- The international Scout movement was started by Baden Powell in England in 1907. To commemorate the 100-year jubilee, a large international scout camp (Jamboree) is being held near Chelmsford, NE of London.

My daughter who is a patrol leader in our local scout group is taking part in this Jamboree, after first sailing on a Scout vessel all the way from Oslo, Norway. My wife, son & I therefore flew from Oslo to Stanstead outside London to visit her.

After spending a day walking around the camp with her, we returned to our rental car and started driving south-west towards Portsmouth, where we intended to visit the HMS Victory museum.

This confluence point is located very close to the A3 highway which leads to Portsmouth, so it was just a 10-minute detour to drive past it.

Since the confluence is noted as already having sufficient documentation, we did not even try to enter the farm itself, just stopped along the road and took pictures. Even without entering the farm itself, this is well within the 100-m limit of a successful visit.
