I parked up right next to the FBM after spotting it on the satnav. Okay, it was someone's driveway, but I didn't hang around too long to be told off.

Parked at the restaurant and popped across the road in the dark. Easy. Whilst we are out shattered and cold, normal people were in the restaurant eating and drinking..... One horizontal and one vertical edge badly chipped.

We were driving along when I spotted the trig point on memory map. I was pleasantly surprised when we pulled in and I realised it was an FBM rather than a large trig pillar!

Roadside FBM in grassed area at rod junction so access is very easy. Grass cutting had just taken place so there was no problem in locating. An urban location so not an inspiring one.
