A meadow close to Brampton Hall, Suffolk, UK.
One of two spanning midnight 2017-02-10 52 1 - 2017-02-11 52 1 - ETA 22:45.
Early in the month I'd caught a minor lurgy. This combined with bad weather and uninteresting points led to a slow start. Today the weather was worse and the points scarcely more interesting but I felt well. It was the full moon with a bonus partial eclipse.
There was a place to park at the start of a public footpath. A short exploration suggested this was a no go. Double fencing and a ditch were in the way. Earlier I'd spotted a gate on Google Street View. I headed back to the road and found the gate becoming overgrown. This gave access to the meadow and it was only 40 metres to the hashpoint.
The eclipse was a big fail. There was low cloud and continuous light rain occasionally turning to snow. There was one great bonus. An impatient driver was tailgating me even though I was driving at the speed limit plus 5%. Eventually he managed to overtake and was immediately caught by a speed camera with its distinctive camera double flash. I now have an injured hand from punching my car roof with joy! I can't repeat what I said!
