Myriad of fake wayspots in Celle, Wienhausen and Langlingen, Episode 1

Unfortunately, in my home town and the surrounding villages, more fake waypoints have appeared. Taking sphere photos and trying to find the true location takes so much time that I will make follow up posts for more as I work myself through this mess.

There will be a follow up to this post when I find time to clean up the pretty large amount of fake wayspots in Langlingen, which I already partially reported, but they were of course all rejected.
