Found after 15 minutes in the fast fading light, the road sign is no more but the base of it is still there if somewhat damaged, bolt well down but with the photos and measurements we got there in the end.

Took me a while to uncover it. For a while I thought that the sign had been moved and I was going to have trouble but I eventually uncovered it under the stones.

Found under a pile of stones. About 5 metres away on a concrete manhole surround, is an EABM, which I presume is an Enviroment Agency Benchmark.

Thanks to Capt G for unearthing this one. Arable fields and a couple of wooded hills can be seen to the south.

Nearly 4 years since this one has been uncovered so I am not surprised it took some significant locating and excavation. I have filled the location with sone and a slight dusting of dirt so it should be findable for some time to come. See the photos for a bigger clue.

Located in the triangle of a funnel junction of two minor roads. Despite probing the ground with my trusty screwdriver I could not find the damn thing. Looking at the photos of others the roads have been resurfaced since it was last found and the flood warning sign has been leaning for nine years. A small wooded hill can be seen to the south, to the north Gray Hill can be seen in the distance.

Re-buried. I must have prodded all around it, but failed to find it.
