Mining finished and FBM out of sight.

Drove most of the way to the locked gate - stopped at some kilns and walked the rest. First visitor since descarte1 at the end of 2010. The spoil has settled and has a healthy covering of vegetation. I found the remains of a couple of belts but if they're the ones in descarte1's photos, the FBM is now buried. I didn't have the tools to dig through spoil and rubble. The conveyor belt wasn't working - it may no longer be in use.

Badly dinged FBM located near a clattering conveyor belt. The FBM is leaning and missing a corner based on what I could see. The caveat being....spare/old conveyor belt material had been dumped on top of the FBM! The road up was solid ice with a 3" layer of snow on top. Abandoned the car 1km away and walked in before heading up to Corsencon Hill to catch the sunset.

The FBM has certainly taken a knock. Height indicator gone from datum bolt. OSBM bracket faces 54 NE. GPS plate faces 324 NW. Nearby road was solid ice.

7m S of former road, now a gated track with conveyor alongside. FBM marker almost in line with N-S wall, chipped and leaning, presumably damaged during conveyor construction. No height tag. CCTV facing along road to welcome visitors.
