This was probably the most anxious I have been getting to a grid square. It was also fantastically exhilarating. My starting point was the National Trust car park by the camp site in square TF9643. Having previously had difficulties crossing the salt marsh just north of here (exceptionally slippery mud), I initially took the coastal path eastwards. I was not too sure when low tide was and the distance there seemed a lot further than I had expected. There were also three streams to cross. However, once there it was just superb a massive open space with not a soul in sight. I doubt there was anyone within a mile of me. Truly memorable thanks Geograph for getting me there, even though my whole trip was over seven miles.

The camera location was fixed using a Nikon GP-1 GPS unit attached to it.
