It was drizzling as I pulled up beside the pillar and I spotted a lorry heading towards us along the lane. As I got out a heard a grating noise coming from the car's engine. So quickly reversed into the layby (so the lorry could get past) and then decided to ignore the noise and head off. If the car broken (which it didn't) it was better to be in a residential area than the open countryside.

What a pain in the arse this one was for me. Firstly, the satnav wanted me to drive through the iron fence surrounding the Necropolis site. I then ditched the car to find a way inside. There are only two entrances and one of them is a bridge across the road. I made my way (after admiring the edifices) to the coordinates only to find nothing because it was on the other side of the wall. Back to the car and I had to find my way to the coordinates by instinct (which, I admit, are rusty) and then I parked up again on the correct side of the wall. As I approached the coordinates I heard voices. There was two guys near the bench, only feet away from the FBM. One was on the phone having an argument. The other was smoking a spliff. Both in school uniform. I was pleased to get this one under my belt and onto the next one.

Getting to the location was an adventure in itself as the road to the area was closed. After going all around the houses I eventually got there to find the road closed just beyond where I need to get to. As I started my search I suspected the FB was in amongst a huge hedge that had grown up around it. Then I heard voices and a couple of farm hands appeared and wanted to know what I was doing. So, naturally I told them. They helped me find the FBM even though they knew nothing about it. They even cleared it of moss so that I could take a picture. After thanking them I went on my way.

I wasn't planning on stopping for this pillar, but I saw it on the satnav and then I saw it out of the car window and thought it was a possible option for stopping. Then I found a gate into the field with enough space for my car. So the decision was made.

The FBM is still in it's playpen and the ground within has been tidied up by a local (apparently) so that there is no foliage of any kind at the moment. No height plate. Otherwise in good condition. Whilst here a local dog walker said that I was the first person she had seen taking pictures of the FBM. So I gave her some history about bench-marks and pillars.

She appeared relieved as there is a planning application for the field to be made into homes. Personally I think the pillar is safe (as it just falls outside of the field) but time will tell.

The building was gutted by fire in 1947 but I believe the building is still there and, therefore, the bolt may still be too.

This one took some time to time due to the amount to stinging nettles. I didn't have anything to beat them down so I had to use my body (legs and feet). The best way to find the FBM is to find the drain nearest to the bridge, walk in 10 feet and then go right by 2 feet. You will then trip over it.

I think she thought I was going to make a run towards the FBM regardless or return after dark and climb over the building.
