Parked very near to the remains thatv are on a very well kept green. Found the concrete with the hole in it...not much more to say really.

Bagged as YSM032 Bovingdon Green. A lovely green and a quick find, not what I expected at all. We came armed with the following description: "1" diameter threaded sleeve c. 4" deep in 2 x 2m concrete block. Sketch states cast iron rod in top of concrete cistern. So despite PSD calling it a bolt, it's not"

'Other' kinda lacks definition but at least I can confirm it's definitely threaded. :-) ..one dog walker on a quiet weekend morning.

Well, the hole may be threaded or it may be not but I wasn't going to check today as it was adorned with fox poo. Other than that it was a lovely setting and a very short stroll from the car.

Found as YOSM 032. A most unusual TP as it is essentially just the base but found on a village green. Parking within 50 feet.

Found as a geocache on a lovley sunny afternoon. The grass had just been cut on the cricket pitch and the main green.

Bizzare! A concrete cap next to the playing field, with a threaded hole, which no doubt used to hold the bolt? Spotted a squirrel.

Somewhat underwhelming but nice enough area, shame no cricket on when I visited. Strange item, would never have known...

Apart from the lost cap, nothing else wrong with it.

Strange one this - not seen this type before, looks like a hole for a rotating washing line. Is it damaged? not sure - gone with the flow.

Pleasant village green, nice houses, birds singing on a Spring morning, but I did feel trainspottery bagging this. Concrete mound with threaded hole at centre. Nothing to identify what it was for - I wouldn't have had a clue if it hadn't been for this website.

I have not seen anything quite like this before. Not sure how it works but I guess it does. A pleasant village green with easy access and parking close by. Not much else to say about this one really.

I wasn't sure this was it at first, but a quick visit to the OS passive station database confirms that it is. It is set into a concrete mound in the middle of the village green. It should be a capped pipe, but there is no longer a cap on it.
