Near a multi tonne farmyard manure pile 1.5 km north of Burgh St. Peter, Norfolk, UK.
The hashpoint was close to my commute home and only a few metres from a public footpath. This should be an easy expedition and indeed it was but not without interest. My departure was delayed because I had to move a microwave oven into my workplace. This involved trolleys and lifts and took some time so the daylight was fading fast as I set out.
There was a safe place to park right at the start of the footpath which was marked by a sizeable sarson stone. The track to the hashpoint was easy to follow and the snowdrops blooming in the grass and under the trees were shining in the twilight. Near the hashpoint it became obvious that there was a very large, fragrant agricultural manure pile really close to the destination. A small diversion round the end of the pile led to the hash a few paces into a field of winter wheat. This was a near-miss poo-pile hash.
I was gathering tracklog data for OpenStreetmap because the footpath was missing from their database. This became interesting as it got very dark and the path signposting became increasingly difficult to see. I eventually reached the road with only one wrong turning.
