#1: Location CP 52N-9E

(visited by Thomas Barthel)

03-Sep-2011 -- Due to a nice weekend near the ‘Teutoburger Wald’ the chance was given to visit this Confluence Point only 17 km away in a straight line. The CP 52°N-9°E is located in the east of the village Hagendonop in a field.

This trip began in the early morning shortly after sunrise. By coming from south, over Blomberg, I took the road ‘Blomberger Straße’ direction north east until I reached the village of Donop. There a small junction leading north to the village of Hagendonop. The GPS showed the right and for 150 meters still paved way up to the field with the CP.

The street sign at the junction shows the houses 68 – 68b and 70 – 70b. Shortly after changing into a dirt road the confluence monument appears on the right side of it. It is a natural boulder with an information board fixed on it. A smaller path leads up to the left field in which the CP is located. After another 150 meters through this field and a pair of really wet shoes caused by the dew on the grass I reached the Confluence quite soon and without any problems. A hollow, overgrown by small trees, is situated directly next to the CP (about ten meters in direction west).While best weather and excellent GPS signal I did the pictures and drove back to a nice breakfast – especially for me.

This Confluence Point was very easy to reach. The panoramic picture shows direction south east in the middle. The picture of the location was done in a distance of 40 m from the CP.
