Pouring rain and a very busy road, disinclined to jump ditch and climb barbed wire fence so viewed briefly from verge. All looks ok.

I pulled into the layby and exited the car, leaving Mrs Rat there (again). She watched as I crossed the road and negoiate a fence. A fence with barbed wire and wobbly posts. I was a bit shakey getting over the fence and the sheep in the field scattered. Returning back over the fence was easier than original getting over it.

Log #74. Another simple FBM. I parked at the Commando Mem, but there is a layby more or less right opposite the benchmark. It's in a little hollow, and is only one barbed-wire fence from the road. There are some straggly looking trees between the fence and the road, so for views of Nevis range, the memorial is much better. [ExP-69/MiP-0/BM-5]

Benchmark.
Nevis range.
Panorama from the Commando Memorial. Not the best one I've done, could do with getting a tripod.

Parked in layby, SW side of road at NN210821. Ditch and barbed fence to cross. GPSr recorded height of 126m. Some earlier visitors have referred to the FUNDAMENTAL BENCH MARK as a trig point. This is not a trig. Two completely different functions with only the OS PSD in common.

As others have said, the ditch and barbed wire are a bit of a nuisance. A lay-by on the road is handier than the Commando memorial car park but the walk is short and the footpath good.
