(visited by Gordon Spence)

23-Nov-2003 -- Having succesfully completed 53N 04W yesterday, it seemed a shame not to do a revisit to this point. It was a while back that I was last here, but I couldn't remember exactly how long ago it was. Checking back to this site and I realise it was just over two years by a few days.

After the exertions of yesterday, I was looking forward to this CP as I knew that you could get close enough for a succesful visit without even having to leave the car. Pic 5 - the GPS montage indicates this!

It was a bright, clear and frosty morning, punching Gyfelia into the sat-nav I set off. Last time I drove here along the main roads, this time it was back lanes as I set the sat-nav to the "shortest" route.

Nothing much has changed, since my last visit. The field is still extremely wet and saturated. No cows this time though.

The first four pictures are the cardinal points of North (Pic 1), East (Pic 2), South (Pic 3) and West (Pic 4). A few cars drove down the lane (single track - barely wide enough for one vehicle) and I got some strange looks, but nobody stopped.

Back into the warmth of the car and back to my wife's parents house for Sunday dinner and then on to home. Two more points to go and Wales is complete.
