Britglyph: 12 markers left, call to action!

(viewed 1470 times)
Since we began the Britglyph project there has of course been a specified 'end date'. The only reason for that is because, well, everything has to come to an end right, even something this fun.

We extended the 'end date' from Friday the 9th till today, the 12th. Unfortunately, despite a spirited showing from some Britglyphers over the weekend, we are still 12 markers short of completion.

I'm loathe to put another 'end date' on the project, but at the same time we need something to aim for, and with only 12 markers left we are just so close to finishing. Just to re-iterate once more, when all markers are done we will have created the largest piece of art ever created by man, I think that's an achievement worth us all doing our best to help complete.

Some of us are more able to get out during the week or in the evenings to do markers, but most of us have a much easier time of it on the weekend so I am again extending the deadline for Britgyph by one week, aiming for the 19th of Jan.

What I ask is if you can please have a look at the locations still outsanding below and see if you are closeby and can do one, or know anyone in any of these areas and can let them know about their marker.

Last 12 Britglyph markers:

Carmont
Brechin
Davington
Carlisle
Haydon
Bishops Frome
Fenton/Warboys
Rowlands Castle
Pulborough/Marehill

Thank you Britglyphers, spread the word!!

Frosty marker

(viewed 1049 times)
50.9551,-1.47248 must be the most uninspiring location on britglyph, on a roundabout at the top of the M271! The stones were left over from a bottle I was trying to weigh down, to hold the sat nav in a cup holder. At least the frosty grass makes the location seem nicer... although that should really have thawed by late afternoon! Brrr.
