Followed Rob's log - 1" bolt in block at top of bank above tongue between parking bays in line with lefthand edging, thin covering of grass, took much less time than expected.

Quick and easy find, without a GPS but with the aid of the OS sketch. Some great views from near here. I would recommend the views to anyone.

An easy find using the OS location sketch. Hidden in long grass, but currently the surface block isn’t buried. The block has a large notch cut into it, obscuring the original centre punch mark (I’ve therefore rated it as ‘slightly damaged’). Nice views eastwards.

Grass quite long and lots of dog fouling prevented proper search. Hope to have more time to measure it out and bring tools to excavate.

Found on my second visit after having another look at the uploaded photos. It is obscured by long grass so very easy to miss.

Third time lucky! Walked over it several times, before finding it, buried under 2 inches of grass/soil, I think i would of been still unlucky if not for the sketch and image on the OS site - My first surface block.

Didnt have any details about this with me, jsut the waypoint in GPS so not sure what i was looking for! Goto to the exact point according to GPS, but saw nothing. Looking now at OS site, i was standing right on top of it for one of the pictures!!!

it just under my feet! ©barryhunter

Not much to be said about a surface block.

Actually managed to find this in the long grass, thanks to the sketch map on the OS site.
