[edit] Location

Part-way along Clockhouse lane, Ashford, in Middlesex; in the verge by the roadside.

This is a busy road that runs between the Bedfont Lakes water park - this being England in February and the park is shut down. The road is ill-lit with poor pavement (sidewalk) that just ends before a nasty humpbacked bridge.

The Geohashing point was on the narrow strip of land at the far-side of the road.

[edit] Plans

At least two of us (new users both) are intending to hit this spot, independently, after our work day ends.

[edit] Expedition

[edit] The trip - Kenneth.

This was my first geohashing expedition and as I don't have a car I have been waiting for a location near(ish) to either my place of work, or home.

I've arranged with Dnfrd, a work colleague, that we would both both go separately. I took the bus from my place of work (Brentford) to the nearby town of Hounslow where I changed to a different bus and then hopped off that when it reached the nearest point. A couple of miles later and my phone apps showed I was across the road from the location. The GPS on the phone had me at the location when I stood in the carcass of a dead fox. I decided to take a couple of steps to the left and put the marker on an ash tree and leave the fox to its rest.

[edit] The trip - Dnfrd.

This would have been my first geohashing expedition however it did not go as planned. The location was right on my drive home from work so I obviously planned to just stop and log my arrival on my way home. Only problem is my memory, whilst leaving work I completely forgot about this, drove past the location without a second thought and only remembered it the morning after. So I'm still waiting for my successful geohashing expedition!
