[edit] Expedition

Sourcerer (Neil) spotted that the hash point was only 850 metres west of the Greenwich Meridian and there was another hashpoint 850 metres east. This was the ideal opportunity to collect two easy hashes within walking distance of each other. In the end he didn't walk because the siren call of a Bateman's pub was too strong. This involved a small detour by car. After that he needed petrol. For this hash point he only walked about 3.2km. There were red deer hiding in the wood next to the hash point.

I have a gdb file from my Garmin GPS receiver. I used GPSBabel to convert it to GPX/XML format. Here is the trackpoint for the geohash. The time-stamp is in GMT.
