(visited by Ross Finlayson)

24-Jul-2018 -- My final Degree Confluence Point of the day was inside this farm field, next to a narrow country road, just north of Clermont-Ferrand. There were no cattle inside the field at the time of my visit, although I saw several ‘cow patties’ that indicated that they were present not long ago. Also, I could see that the bottom of an impressive-looking oak tree - just east of the point - had been evened out by hungry cattle.

Here is a remote-controlled aerial video of this confluence point.
