1" bolt in block, with two bricks on top flush with ground. made same mistake as iainmac: lining up with house the block is 3.5m to R. At top of bank 2m from road edge. Bricks carefully replaced, they just fit.

For some reason was expecting a pillar here! Phone app soon had me on the right lines. There shouldn't be a problem locating this block again as long as owner/tenant of cottage opposite keeps the grass cut as they've inserted 2 house bricks over the block and flush with the grass. 1" bolt set in concrete - an easy find after all.

This surface block was quite tricky as its outside a house. After walking up and down a few times I investigated a small dug hole on the grass and hit it. Thanks to whoever found this and made it accessible otherwise it would be 2-3 underground!

Chap had just cut the grass so I didn't think he'd be too impressed if I started poking and digging!

Struggled to find it as I was lining up on edge of house rather than garage. Owner saw me and found it, even provided trowel to dig it out.

Didn't find it but the lack of the OS sheet didn't help me in looking

Sorry to contradict previous logs, but this block is very much alive and well. It may be that it was hidden by growth previously - it's very visible now.

3 of us spent ages looking, i think the people in the nearby house thought we were strange! Looked in the exact position that the os guy was on the photo. Sad as this was our first!
