Sourcerer (Neil) spotted that the hash point was only 850 metres east of the Greenwich Meridian and there was another hashpoint 850 metres west. 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 450 metres. Neil believes he was the first to visit a geohash in the Skegness graticule.

Sourcerer earned the Virgin Graticule Achievement
by being the first to reach any hashpoint in the (53, 0) graticule, here, on 2010-09-04.

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.
