#1: Confluence point

(visited by John Dag Hutchison and Aase Tveitan Hutchison)

28-Jun-2015 -- This visit turned out to be more cumbersome than expected. Our satnav in the car took us to a closed road, then to an industrial area with no activity.

That was 134 m from the confluence point. To get closer would imply climbing a fence and penetrate a hedge. Walking a bit around there was an approach a couple of hundred metre further away and down a path. It lead to some people playing in a small field indicating that this was private land.

On the way back to the car we saw the notice. We then approached the cp from the other side and found a promising lane about 200 metres from the cp. The last 120 m turned out to be through a patch of shrubs and nettles before opening up into a field with grazing cows. Dressed in a T-shirt I decided half way through the nettles that I would settle for 94 meter. I did not have time for more that day.
