Bella's very well thanks :)

Have a look on Google Maps and see if you can locate the spot.

Once you have, point the mouse arrow at the place, then right click and choose 'What's here?'.

Copy and paste the latitude/longitude that appears in the search box into this thread.

Job done ...

Regards

Chris

Hi John and Chris,

I think I may have tracked down this elusive layby at the far end of Green Lane, Hemingby, Lincs..

Is it at 53.28081,-0.110191

(John, if you copy and paste these co-ordinates into google maps, or google earth, you can see if this is the layby that you're thinking of?).

The only other possible stopping place I can see on Green Lane is at 53.272611,-0.124353 where the old Roman road crosses it, but I think my first guess is the most likely one.

Right - got it now!

Just here 53.280765, -0.110636 - Google Maps (http://tinyurl.com/c38algq)

The latitude/longitude are approximately 53.280765 -0.110636 ...

Note the minus, John. That means it's west of the Greenwich meridian. Places to the east of the meridian are positive, but the plus sign is usually omitted.

Regards

Chris
