Arch, if you're really into this sort of thing (although quite honestly I don't think you're 'sad' enough) - well you might be interested in this project. Alas, most of the 'confluences' in Europe have already been 'done' - the nearest one to me is only a few miles away on the edge of Ashdown Forest.Arch said:Now, I'll regret mentioning this, when someone steals the idea and does it first, but I fancy visiting all the various 'centres' and writing a book about them. You know, a lightly comic travelogue in a Bill Bryson style. It's just one of a number of ideas for such a book I have, all just waiting for when I have the time and money to do the actual travel.
There was another site in which the project was, to visit - and take a photo whilst in - every National Grid 1Km square in the UK. When I last looked there were still a few squares left to 'claim'. I'll see if I can find the link to that.
Edit: found it:
