Strange FBM quiet a distance from the road. Parked at the house at the end of the road to Corwar Mains and the plan was to go over the gate up the track to the FBM, however gate had barbed wire wound round the top, clearly someone doesn't want you crossing here but if you go down the road a bit the fence has fallen over and can be easily crossed. Then a short but boggy walk to the FBM at the edge of a clearing near the quarry, felt an odd kind of place but it was late and starting to get very dark.

Roadside parking, field gate and track then veer off into trees. FBM on edge of a clearing in conifer plantation. Trees encroaching as they mature. Height tag missing.

Up track from road then through trees using GPS to easily locate the FBM.

Just to the south of an old quarry. Wet day, wet ground, wet feet.
