Belated congrats to Rob on logging all Fundamental Benchmarks:

(I'm waiting for him to complete a log of all cut benchmarks; estimated to be around half a million of those :) )

Does he visit the sites of those long gone (as saddos) like me or only those extant? I sometimes worry about visiting the site where there was a chimney 30 years ago or an empty field.
PS is Rob married.
PPS Wish I had visited all the FBMs to be found. How about a book or dedicated section on trigpointing to help the rest of us.

Ha ha. Should have read the article before posting. All extant and sites of the 6 vanished to follow.

Where do we find the list of 'non-pillar flush brackets' ? From memory I've visited only one - Holme Fen. I hadn't appreciated there were so many.

Thanks. It seems there's one, very close to Moacky Mansion, which I drive past every morning. Must stop one day soon to have a look.
