(737) Handy nearby bit of parking down Tower Road. Was fairly confident about finding this, but then saw the site. Grass getting quite long, and ground rutted/compacted from farm machinery going across it. But thanks to previous logs that narrowed down it's general location, it was found after about 5 minutes of probing the ground with a spark plug spanner. Covered over by a fairly thick matting of grass and roots, and a light layer of soil, which was soon removed. Bolt has a scuff mark on the top now - no doubt from grass cutting - but it's nothing major.

1" bolt in block 3m from field edge and 4m from fallen tree trunk, as per Brisey's line. Thanks to trig-man or whoever uncovered it!

3rd attempt at this one. Found after 10mins. Paced it out from signpost after reading Brisey log

Running out of time now and had a quick look but, as others have said, its location isn't obvious so had to leave it.

Using information from previous visitors and the OS sketch had us in the right location. The only really solid data to work from is the 15.78 m from the guidepost. Most other reference markers do not exist, although they can be mapped out virtually. The area to the north of the guidepost has been filled with gravel which makes probing a totaly ineffective search technique. We noted numerous holes in the gravel layer which were a little to the west of were we believed the true location to be

Yorkshire. We didn't have the photos with us but were certainly in the right spot. Unfortunately it did not present itself.

Measured from base of signpost towards woodland as per Brisey's directions. Found after about 10 minutes under a shallow mat of grass - relatively easy for a surface block.

I had high hopes of finding this one given Brisey's clue but its now a quagmire with tractors using the whole area as an entrance to the field. Had a hunt around for 15 minutes but no luck.

It's somewhere in that mud I think!

The posts shown on the OS diagram have disappeared and the grass was long, so I had a bit of difficulty in finding this one. But when I got to the right spot, the block was quite clear. It is on the line from the fingerpost to Norwood Plantation on the horizon to the NNE. GR to 10m only.

TP0363 location Line up this post with the plantation on the horizon then approx 16m from the post along this line.
