(visited by Gordon Spence and Dave Patton)

15-Jul-2008 -- Onto our last visit for today and of Dave's short UK visit. I have been here before to film a piece for the BBC and I posted the note about this being a working farm. In respect of that we decide to walk as far as the entrance gate to the farmyard but go no further.

An uneventful drive across from 51N-00 and I pull up by the farm and announce to Dave "we're here". I park in the entrance to the field opposite. No need for walking boots this time, it's only 20 yards across the road :-)

As I previously said, we talked about the right of respecting people's wishes and despite there being people in the yard we just went as far as the entrance gate, the boundary of the yard. We were within about 30m or so, so easily a successful visit. Take some photo's and then off to Winchester and the guest house where Dave was staying overnight.

As an interesting aside, that makes 10 visits in a row now that I have achieved a WAAS lock. I wonder if they are now bringing the EGNOS satellites out of test mode?
