(visited by Jean-Luc Frérotte)

English

29-May-2013 -- Après la visite du point 53N-7E, je me dirige vers le point 52N-7E. Sur l'autoroute A31, je prends la sortie 32 vers Legden, puis je suis la route K33 de Legden à Stadtlohn. Le point se trouve dans une forêt non loin de la route.

Je gare la voiture près du monument déjà mentionné par mes prédécesseurs, il est juste au bord de la route, à 200 m du point selon le système WGS84. Il pleut toujours et le sol dans la forêt est très humide avec des flaques d'eau partout.

Le point se trouve dans une forêt de chênes et de hêtres. Selon le GPS, le point est juste entre un gros pin et un jeune hêtre. A cause de la couverture végétale, il me faut un peu de temps pour obtenir tous les zéros, mais finalement j'y arrive. Dans les environs, il y a quelques jeunes houx, et du trèfle.

Je reprends la route vers le point 51N-7E.

29-May-2013 -- After the visit of the point 53N-7E, I continue towards the point 52N-7E. On the highway A31, I take the exit 32, direction Legden, then I follow the road K33 from Legden to Stadtlohn. The point is in a forest not far from the road.

I park the car close to the monument that is already described by my predecessors; it is right at the edge of the road, at about 200 m to the confluence according to WGS84 system. It's still raining and the ground in the forest is very wet with many puddles around.

The point is in a forest of oaks and beeches. According to the GPS, the point is right between a large pine and a young beech. Because of the leaves cover, it takes a while to get all the zeros, but finally I get them. In the surroundings, there are some young holly and clover.

I continue my trip to the next point: 51N-7E.
