Lashing with rain. Only a token glance around.

Was passing on way back from days trigging so a revisit to look for buried block was called for. As Keith says there is something like a block there but also other flat stones

I found a buried block at about the right place, but no bolt. Then I found other bits of flat stone pushed into the turf, probably by farming. Field had been cropped. Overall, I'm not convinced my find was genuine. The block replaces the pillar, same GR. The interesting point here is that the field is pristine - level and manicured. So they must have dug out the whole pillar, base and all, and then re-levelled, or we'd see a scar. Then they must have buried the block. Thereafter, because the field is obviously cropped (probably just for silage), the block will always have been vulnerable. I don't think we'll find it

The OS trig marks database gives a computation date of 1948 for station SE02/T036 but that seems more likely to refer to the pillar which preceded the block. Then presumably the block inherited the station data on the pillar's demise in 1960. The block is recorded with a maintenance year of 1962 so would guess that its been removed by agricultural developments in the subsequent 50 years.
