Grabbed this on a trip from Llangollen to Aberystwyth easy find behind green railings suggesting the locals are fierce and this FBM needs caging for its safety

The FBM marker sits safely inside its playpen close to the golf course near the eastern edge of the town. It has English and Welsh GPS plates and an old Bench Mark plate. There is adjacent parking and a bench on Forge Road. To the east the golf course is flanked by some of the foothills of the Cambrian Mountains. The tops of some of the mountains of Southern Snowdonia can be seen in the distance to the west.

Montgomeryshire. Nicely enclosed in green railings, this FBM is in a pretty location outside the town. Road widening is taking place on the road leading from Machynlleth to the FBM but should hopefully stop just short. Nevertheless, I have not seen the plans and this may be a real danger. The height tag is missing.

In railings beside 'narrow moutain road', missing height plate. The railings are slightly bent in places (does that get logged for the trigpoint??)
