I'd already been to the hashpoint in the Cambridge graticule this afternoon, but due to the prime meridian there was another one on offer only about 20 miles away near Peterborough. I had a quick stop in the village of Christchurch to try to find a couple of geocaches (one found, one not) but then the sun was starting to think about setting, so I made my way west as swiftly as possible.
The hashpoint was near a large shopping mall, so I made use of their carpark and their facilities, then walked through the underpass under the A1260. I was quite close to an office building, but the hashpoint itself was on some waste ground next door. With all the new shops and offices nearby I was surprised that it hadn't been built on yet. There was a small ditch, but it wasn't big enough to be intended to keep people out, just to drain water, so I was easily able to find the hashpoint about ten metres away from the office carpark. I again tried to photograph the GPS but none of the numbers came out. Everything else was very un-picturesque so I just snapped a couple of shots in either direction from the edge of the waste ground and headed back to the car.
Another small detour on the way back led to finding a small geocache in the shopping centre carpark -- GCX29F -- but I forgot to photograph it as proof so you'll just have to believe me.
By then it was almost 5pm so I set off for home before the rush hour started.
