TQ9296 : OOPS!

taken 13 years ago, near to Ostend, Essex, Great Britain

A perfect example of the difference between precision and accuracy. The grid reference for TQ9296 : Stokes Hall Sluice #1 is precise to within 10m however its accuracy is somewhat limited! TL9137 9726 is near the village of Thompson in Norfolk’s Breckland District. Even allowing for the typo on the sheet letters it would be about 74m out. If the sign had said “somewhere in Essex” it would have been accurate but not precise. Ignore the compass bearing & pointer on the GPS it only works when moving
