No sign of a Surface Block or Trig Rivet. Both deleted from the available on-line OS records, so no knowing which one replaced the other. Possibly lost due to installation of crash barrier. Rivet benchmark on top surface of bridge parapet on opposite side of the road most likely unrelated.

not a lot to say about a destroyed block. be aware that the traffic coming out of Stafford at rush hour was back logged beyond the old seven stars pub.

Suspect this is lost to the crash barrier installation.

Crash barrier foundation at expected location is so smooth and block like I was tempted to dig it out for a proper look, but something stopped me - mostly the fact that its neighbours are mostly the same.

No tape, no hole, no block, and no rivet in the nearby pavement. Pleasant enough location though.

Staffordshire. No sign of surface block or even the rivet with the paint triangle. The paths appear to have been resurfaced.

Only about 400m from the Stafford FBM, on a bridge over river. But block has gone, lost when they built a new crash barrier. I used the OS sketch to locate the exact spot, but nothing found A few metres away on centre of bridge is a small rivet with OS triangle round it, maybe a replacement

Spade marks the spot where block should be Definitely no block; I dug around

Could not find it, even with the OS sketch to hand. Didn't even see any tape on the crash barrier! Mind you, it was dark at the time!

Seem to think this has gone when barrier put up.This is the first time i have had more than a quick drive by look and can find no sign,but these can be elusive things so hedging my bets by saying "possibly" missing!

No sign of any tape now, so I couldn't home in on Pyoung's direction. If it's there, then bloody hard to find! I await some other person's better luck!

The Bridge Just to show I went!

Reading previous logs there's a great deal of doubt over this one. The sketch puts it in the middle of the verge. But that appears to be pre-barrier construction as this is not marked on the sketch. I'm the first to offer up photographic evidence of the site and I'm bucking the trend by listing this as deffinately missing. After extensive prodding, measuring out and checking alignments I am convinced this block was removed on construction of the barrier. Interesting position of the tape on the barrier! Please see photos and make up your own mind.

TP0460 - The site.
TP0460 - Tape on the barrier fits with measurements and alignments.
TP0460 - Is this hole evidence that the trig has been removed?

Took the OS sketch with me and, like previous visitors, found what I think must be it. In a rather odd place on a bridge rising over the River Trent.

I may have or may not have found it.. Need to see an OS photo. There is a stud in the pavement on Sandon Bridge, roughly the correct place. Its not a big brassy thing like what lurks at the base of a pillar but a large rivet. It was highlighted by a pink triangle. So not 100% sure about this one.
