Norwich, United Kingdom - Expeditions in: 2014 - 2013 - 2012 - 2011 - 2010 - 2009

[edit] Summary

The Norwich graticule was much more active in 2010 with 24 expeditions, 22 coordinates reached and one retro.

  • MagicIan was very active with 10 expeditions.
  • Sourcerer made his debut in August eventually setting out on 15 expeditions. His last was near midnight on New Year's Eve.
  • Norwich would have had more expeditions than neighbouring Cambridge if Sourcerer had been more loyal to his home graticule. He kept visiting Cambridge when the hashpoint was in the sea.
