I parked up within a few metres of the given coordinates but could I see the FBM. I powered up the GPSr and still I couldn't see it. It was leading me to the corner of the road. I looked in the hedge, I asked the horses in the field where it was. After a whilst I decided to go online. The plan was showing me to where the GPSr was pointing. But there was nothing there. However, I decided to look anyway and that's was when I spotted it. Buried up to the top of the FBM.

Am I not lucky. Graeme1527 and Trigbager had been the week before and done all the hard work and cleared the area making it very easy to find.

Easy find, in grass triangle at junction of roads. Adjacent to sign. Probably was a visible column at one stage. Local farmer told me when he was a boy the junction was altered and a "chicane" was put in the road to slow the traffic. The present "island" was seemingly a part of this.

A strange FBM, logged on the way to the Mega Cachebash in Harrogate. An easy find on the grass triangle. The view helped solve a riddle - we could not understand why there were so many MGB's on the road but from here we could see them all gathering on the local hill-climb circuit to the south! Some WS/W views.

Not normally my sort of thing (give me a pillar anytime) but made a brief detour to visit it as it was more or less on my route. Easily found in grass triangle at the crossroads. Poor visibility today so don't take much notice of the score.
