10-Aug-2016 -- Last CP is 48°N 7°E.

During our stay in the old city of Lille, I decided to visit this confluence point. It was some kilometers away from "de dodengang", a World War I monument (near Diksmuide), which I visited first. After that I hit the road and visited the confluence point, which was quite easy to find. There is even a sign on a house indicating the confluence point.
