Expedition[edit]

The plan was to arrive on the dot of midnight but the snowy roads in north Norfolk caused an 11 minute delay. There was a place to park about 600 metres from the hashpoint. The access road was gated but the adjacent field was not fenced and there was farm vehicle access to the Church Covert woodland track via the field.

This was geohashing at its ultimate. It was silent apart from the breeze. There was a moon, nearly full. The naked trees were casting skeletal shadows. I put up a few pigeons and later a pair of lapwings were calling, probably in alarm at my approach. Rabbits scattered as I drew near.

The low lying meadows next to the Hundred River / Latymer Dam were beginning to freeze but there was quite a lot of water under the ice. The hashpoint was in the fourth meadow close to the river. A new wind turbine could be seen in the distance. No noises were coming from the Africa Alive Wild Life Park.

This hashpoint was quite close to home and the return trip was uneventful.
