Almost didn't spot it as it's not the usual FBM and is very buried.

On side of road, underwhelming fbm, easy to find this time of year as grass had been cut and vegetation died back

A poor looking FBM bagged on journey back from Pembrokeshire.

Found it at the second attempt. It is between the mowed verge and the hedge.

Quite a sorry sight. Rather underwhelming for a FBM.

My first FBM, never spotted one on my travels and this one is about 7 miles from home. Surface looks a bit weak from frost and lichens/mosses. I paced it out 20 from the drainage cover on the road edge at the summit of the road -well once I had stamped about and cleared the grass and nettles.

Easily found on eastern roadside verge, 23m south (approx) of the crossroads sign on the western verge. Manhole covers aren't much use as there's a series of them along the verge.

Came on to this location from the pillar on Cefn-Mawr. Easy roadside find.

E verge at road summit, not the standard marker post/pillar: shallow chamber under light concrete lid easy to lift, was filled with water, standard FBM stud underneath. Welsh & Eng GPS plaques, no height label. No railings. Limited parking by junct to N
