1) About a mile east of the village of East Bergholt and just south of the A12. It was in a sheep field.
Sourcerer - Arrived at about 18:56
Sourcerer (Neil) made a 300 mile journey and took in five hashpoints. This was the first. It was a straightforward circular country walk past fields, across a stream and through a wood.
MagicIan drove 46 miles and parked on Cutler's Lane before walking the last half a mile to reach the hashpoint. When he did this he was quite excited as he mistakenly thought he would be reaching a virgin graticule. The walk itself was fairly uneventful. Even though it was pretty dark the moon provided some assistance and he could also use the pylons nearby to aid his navigation once he was off the footpath and onto the field.
MagicIan didn't have a GPS device at the time and instead took photos of the 'view' from the hashpoint - mostly fuzzy outlines of trees in darkness!
Neil believes this is the first documented expedition in the Canterbury graticule. It seems odd to claim this by visiting a point in Suffolk.
