P146. Parked on grass verge beside trig. Jumped over fence. Soon spotted it. You wonder how this could get so badly damaged, then you see these huge tyre tram lines on each side of it. It must be getting hit by the tractor. Poor wee fella.

Parked in the side road to Thankerton 300 metres away so walked through the open gate into the field then aimed for the woodland where the damaged FBM was easily found.

Nothing really to add other than to confirm that it is still there and in the condition previously described.

Parked up on grass verge at roadside and hopped the fence. Trig located 20m or so into a pasture. No cows or sheep present today; Tinto looming behind it to the west. Both concrete and bolt both damaged - see photos. Height tag missing.

Logged this whilst in the area to climb Tinto. I got off the bus in Thankerton and proceeded to the A73 past Sherifflatts. At the junction there is a gate which can easily be climbed into the FBM field. At present the cows have munched the grass good and short.

No height tag on this Eastern-nibbled FBM. The field had some lambs (thankfully distant) but a 3-tier barbed wire fence is fairly extreme security. :-/

Thankerton ....between organised and disorganised trees.

FBM around 30m back from the fence at the corner of a small copse. Bounced the barbed wire fence avoiding curious coos. The pillar is in good condition except for two removed corners presumably due to farm machinery. Tinto looms ominously behind.

Like others I decided not to hop over the barbed wire. Just visible from the road at this time of year.

Just took picture from road as the bad wire look pretty sharp.

Well hidden in grass but paced out using Rob's instructions and it is obvious.

Plenty of newish barbed wire on the A73 fence, and the grass had grown sufficiently that it was not visible from the. Rob's location is accurate though.
