#1: The Confluence

(visited by David Williams)

22-Aug-2014 -- Visiting Lincolnshire for a not to be repeated sight of 3 AVRO warplanes in flight (two Lancasters and a Vulcan) I detoured to take in this confluence the next morning.

As previously described - its an easy walk along the side of the dike/drainage channel. The confluence field has been planted up with cabbages - but as the ground was dry and rock hard and the plants are still very wee it was possible to walk between the rows right up to the confluence without causing any disturbance to the crops. Closer to the road there was a rabbit proof fence - I guess rabbits do not like to venture too far away from cover. On inspection it is clear that the fence has not done its job.

To the South full grown cabbages were being harvested (seriously - who eats all these greens?). The, mostly, eastern European farmworkers waved and shouted "what is so interesting in that field?" - I showed my GPS and shouted an explanation back. By my calculation at least some of these gentlemen were within the 100m confluence circle - but no names obtained I am afraid.
