[edit] Location

Wrightington, just off Mossy Lea Lane.

[edit] Participants

  • Angel
  • 3 others, whose names and usernames I didn't think to make a note of

[edit] Plans

  • Angel may take any available friend; getting the train to Wigan and then walking up to Euxton Balshaw Lane station via the hash point. Or the other way, depending on convenience. Of course, this depends on being able to afford it.

[edit] Expedition

Angel got the train to Wigan then walked up Wigan Road. The lakes near the point (visible on satellite) turned out to be Wrightington Fisheries. Signs indicated that you're supposed to pay to get in, but there was nobody at the desk and the signs were all dated 2009 or earlier. Geohash Droid kept losing GPS signal, unfortunately, so the coordinates on the photo are a bit off. However, the piles of builder's waste (broken bricks and similar) at the edge of the field were distinctive enough on Google Maps satellite to let me be sure I was standing in the right place.

Met 3 other geohashers at the site - but I already forgot their names (Whoops, I'm terrible with names).
