[edit] Location

Just outside the village of Outwell, near Wisbech, in a field that looks to be part of Beaupré Hall Farm.

This expedition was part of a multihash by Benjw. For the other parts, see:

[edit] Expedition

[edit] Benjw

I set off from the Norwich hashpoint a little after 3pm, and took the A47 and A1122 roads west to Outwell village. The journey was reasonable but at times a little slow, as there was plenty of traffic and no space for anyone to overtake. Still, I wasn't in much of a hurry, so I sat back, listened to some music and ate some melted plastic cheese spread sandwiches as I went along.

I got to Outwell just over an hour later, and quickly found the farm I was looking for. I had a wander around, looking for someone to ok my mission, but there was nobody there at all -- neither in the house nor around the farm buildings. Odd. But since I had already walked halfway to the hashpoint looking for someone to ask about it, I figured it wouldn't hurt to carry on.

Most of the way there, I was walking along a concrete track between two fields. This ended at some kind of storage area with large piles of crates, about 20m from the hash, which was out into a ploughed but empty field. The earth was quite solid so I walked over and found the hashpoint. A few photos were taken, but there wasn't much of interest, and I get to see plenty of farms in this graticule.

I then walked back. Still nobody around at all. Never mind, too late now! I had two cups of thermos tea and another sandwich, and then carried on to the next expedition.
