Mission complete

4 months ago
Market Place, Caistor
My 13 year long Geograph mission was completed on the 24th of June 2019. It had stages, the first was compass records, going almost as far east as it's possible in Southwold Photo, the south coast in various places Photo Photo, north to Harrogate Photo and west/southwest to Exeter Photo. Exeter also completed the longest reasonable distance between two points, as living in a corner of the map in London can't equally travel north and south to get long...

I have been collecting all my life. Coins, rocks, collector's cards, model cars, train tickets and pre-Worboys sign photos.

Once my thousands of archives were up it formed my red patch on...

Been there, done that

Bridgewick Rd, Dengie
My Geograph career has gone from locating and adding five year's worth of archives to myriad and distance collections. Last year was myriads 4-6, quite enough for one summer (you can't get to many with the clocks back), and hadn't decided exactly what map locations I was after this year besides compass points. That involved getting as far as possible on each main compass point, and as NE crossed into the 7th TM myriad decided to cover both and go up the A12 to Colchester (Hythe actually) on...
