#1: looking towards the confluence from about 60m

(visited by Christopher Anton)

06-Mar-2005 -- Yet another rowing meeting - which this time finished very early - allowed me the excuse for another confluence visit. The meeting was in Worcester which is less than 17 miles from 52N2W so it being a nice sunny day I drove through the pleasant Cotswold scenery to the picturesque village of Alderton and parked opposite the pub.

The bridleway which leads almost directly to the confluence was a bit boggy underfoot as can be seen about 60m from the confluence which is just to the right of the fence border seen in the pic. It was unclear at this point which direction the bridleway went, but there was evidence of horses along the fence line so I carried on. There's been some debate about whether it's in the northern (left) or southern field. When I first arrived the GPs was indicated it was on the fence, but after settling down it was a few metres into the southern field. I'm clearly visible in this shot as is the new camera an Olympus E300 SLR.

The obligatory views to the North, East, South and West, and finally a view of the village pub. It seems to have got a new inn sign in the last year. Who says that things never change at confluences!

All-in-all an enjoyable visit and this one must surely be on the list of the easiest to visit confluences in the UK so it's amazing it's not had many more visitors.
