(visited by Gordon Spence)

18-Sep-2010 -- On my last visit here I didn't manage to get all the zero's as the nettles prevented me from getting right in where I needed to be. I was in North Wales so this is on the way home. I was hoping the stingers had died down a bit...

I parked up and completed the visit.

Having done that I set about getting the 10 zero's, the ground cover had died down considerably and I was able to hop over the barbed wire fence and get in under the trees. I managed to get a WAAS/EGNOS lock on even under the trees and got to a 4m reading.

I walked back up to the main road, you can see a sign which says "Van Sales", the arrow is pointing to the general area of the CP. Nice of them to make it so easy to find!

Back to the car and the 170 miles to home.
