A rocky culvert drain, just off the road, in a business park in Morton.

[edit] Expedition

After getting off work and doing a few errands around Morton, I swung by with only my Active Geohasher flyer to show me where to go. I could see the location was right on top of a grey area amongst green, which I correctly surmised were rocks, but incorrectly surmised their purpose (I had though it might have been a landscaping thing). So, I didn't need a GPS to get me to the correct location. I pulled into the drive for the electrical relay station, the southerly of the two lots the location was in-between. That's when I found it was a culvert outlet. I just walked over, stood on the rocks, and took some pictures with my telephone. As culverts tend to gather garbage, I thought I'd do my geotrashing duty and pick up some bottles and cans - I didn't have a bag so that's the extent of what I was willing and able to clean up. That was it, and then I left!
