Walked back down road from pillar. At about the correct distance there are two drainage channels running N from the road which runs NW. Just past the second channel the Surface Block was found a couple of inches below ground level. Left uncovered.

Tricky one as only reliable measurement now is the 161.11m from Downs Barn tirg pillar. Took a rough measurement from the hedge junc, which cannot easily been seen now, but couldn't locate it from that, so measured out 161m from the trig which was more successful. The bolt is 0.45m NE of centre of drainage channel.

Worked hard on this, getting the measurements pretty precise, and following the drainage ditch. Quite a bit of lose rubble under my prodder, but I cannot say that I really uncovered it. Annoying, with the wife watching and giving instructions

Barrington Bushes Bolt location (I think)

Despite consulting the OS diagram and previous log photos, a sweep of the verge on the east side of the road in the right area located nothing. Horrible rainy day so weather was against me and I gave up after 20 mins! Hope to return when the vegetation has died back slightly.

I didn't have the OS diagram with me, and with the long summer grass, I was on a loser with this one.

Not uncovered any more. I failed to bring a suitable prodding implement with me, so after a few fruitless minutes I gave up.

I suspect thanks are due to Glaslyn that this was very straightforward to find - it was still uncovered.

Until I logged the adjacent trig pillar about 10 days ago I didn't know there was a bolt there! Having discovered that there was, I couldn't resist a second visit, so, armed with the OS link sketch and a long-handled trowel I found it remarkably easily. To help future triggers, I have cleared away all the vegetation so it is now clearly exposed, still with some of the OS yellow paint on the concrete. Pleasant spot, on side of lane.
