This was the first of MagicIan's 4-in-a-row geohashes on this day... He parked in Anstey and walked around to the cemetery. He did a lap of the cemetery trying to find a way out into the field beyond, but with no luck. But luck changed when it turned out there was a public footpath in the field next door. He followed it downhill until he found some tractor wheeltracks to follow into the field in order not to disturb the crops that were growing. Then it was just a case of turning uphill again when in the right line. Another few meters and he judged that to be accurate to a few meters on the satellite view. On the way back, he made some markers for any future geohashers to follow, and said hello to a couple of people who happened to be enjoying the countryside. He also picked up some rubbish that was lying on the footpath and around the cemetery and in doing so achieved the Geotrash Geohash


MagicIan earned the GeoTrash Geohash Achievement
by cleaning up the (52, -1) geohash on 2010-06-20.
