Plantation Farm, off the A1101 southeast of Littleport.


Deep in Fenland, alongside the absurdly isolated railway station of Shippea Hill, is the entrance to Plantation Farm. A tractor track runs through the farm to near this most inaccessible of tripoints. The actual point is the confluence of what were presumably two small former tributaries of the Little Ouse, and although these are now dried up and part of the fields, they are visible on the aerial shots of the farm (see the multimap link above). A sign on the entrance to the farm tells the public to keep out, so we didn't get to the point itself. Permission should be obtained from the farmer in advance if the point is to be located.
