#1: the confluence, in a field of wheat

(visited by Dave Patton and Gordon Spence)

14-Jul-2008 -- The day after attempting to visit 55°N 2°W I took the train south from Newcastle to York. Prior to leaving on this trip I had spoken to fellow DCP regional coordinator Gordon Spence, and he had very generously offered to 'drive me around' so that we could visit some confluences together.

Gordon met me on the platform of the York railway station, which at one time was the largest train station in the world. After taking a picture of the 'zero post', we headed off in Gordon's car.

The confluence is not very far out of York, so it didn't take long to drive to a spot close to the confluence, where we parked at the side of the road, 325 metres from the confluence, and then walked down a laneway and across a couple of fields to get to the confluence, in a field of wheat.

The next confluence on this trip was 54°N 2°W.
