Geo-Trips :: Central East Anglia

Griston

A drive from Newmarket, Tue, 27 Mar 2018 by David Howard

This was the second of two trips to the area, the first being mainly to get two pre-Worboys signs which no longer existed once I got there, and discovered some unclaimed first Geographs as a result which I didn't manage to get. After spending half an hour wandering around partly across manure neither attempt reached the correct squares, so armed with the information where square one was (50 yards from where I went) and square two (a mile through more manure) I returned to both claim the easy one and then get as much of the surrounding area as possible. The route is so easy you can get on the A1 in Edgware and keep going in one go with barely any stops.
