Long grass verge, difficult parking. Nothing found.

A few minutes prodding, GPS location wandering, found a few bits of hardcore, token effort.

Well, you can add my name to the list of glorious failures! Arrived with all the pictures and other paraphenalia and was digging in the verge when the farmer, who was ploughing in the adjacent field hopped over the gate to see what I was doing. He said that you can see the house to the NW but the church at Hook Norton is now invisible since the barns on the opposite side of the road were refurbished. He also said that the different coloured tarmac resulted from replacement water pipes and so it is possible that the block was removed when these pipes were laid.......or it could still be under all that rubble!! Anyway, the farmer didn't know anything about the block and said he hadn't seen anyone visit it in 40 years! So....there you have it!

I walked around from the nearby trig armed with trowel, tape measure, photo and diagram but my search proved fruitless. My digging just kept hitting lumps of rubble. The cyclist I had met at the nearby trig appeared and got into conversation. He explained that the road had been widened a year or two previously which may explain our difficulties. You can see evidence of the widening by the change in colour of the tarmac on the northern side.

Had sketch and photo with me but still drew a blank,the sketch says to line up Apex of House with church tower ...but try as i might i couldnt see a bloody church tower ,add the fact that there is a lot of hardcore just under the surface its no wonder i was soo heading to the pub!

For once the OS sketch was of limited value in pinpointing the location. I had no joy.
