strange FBM not is that easy to locate, located flush with the ground, looks more normal when you lift the lid off and you can see a more standard bolt.

I was glad of the guidance from 1:10,000 map and guidance from the site. Several minutes spent parting long grass, ferns, brambles etc. The FBM is totally covered by a firmly attached variety of moss, so the sight of the OS metal tag was the confirmation of finding it! Certainly didn't look like the TheJackRustles photo. Out on a day trip from YHA Clun. FBMs still ahead of pillars for the year at 4 to 3 !

I called in to bag this one whilst heading up to bag some Marilyns not too far north of here. A srrange covered FBM which had me fooled for a while. Glad it had a OS plaque on it.

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

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.

which manhole cover?

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.
