Metal plug [indented letters]. Private [owner unknown]. Not on Access Land [the true Brown Edge], but located on grassy knoll in pasture just above. Fortunately, there is a public footpath into the field with the trig in it, so access is pretty easy. From the road, take the RoW beside the Billy Goat pub.
