YSM198 Countisbury. A nice wee FBM that kind of looks like a wee grave due to the stones around it. Nice spot. Cheers.

Lots of road closures and badly signed diversions around these parts today so took a while to get here. Fortunately not much traffic on a grey mizzly day.

After a visit to the Lynton & Lynmouth Cliff Railway we headed over here to bag the FBM. Just as I have taken my photo I got briefly caught in a massive hail shower, thankfully I had parked only a few feet from gz else I would have got soaked.

Staying at Exford YHA for a few days geocaching, but this YOSM and others encouraged us to drive along the coast road and see a bit more of Exmoor while we were here. FBM found very easily [!] as it is in/near the carpark!

What a cute FBM! All nicely presented to the carpark users with its very own stone wall. All it needs is a few primroses and a gnome and it'll be perfect.

Came to spend the day with friends at a nearby camping barn so got a pass to collect some nearby trigs and caches. This was our furthest reach and, other than a cache on the point, was it for the day.

An FBM set in a low walled enclosure at the entrance to a car park off the A39, on the northern extremity of the Exmoor National Park. Very easy to find but not a lot to see from this location. A short walk to the Butter Hill trigpoint will reward you with far better views.

In a small carpark off the A39 adjacent to the National Trust's Barna Barrow plaque. In the centre of a small piece of grass surrounded by a low stone wall. Usual anti-vandalism plaque. Very misty but I doubt that you could see the sea from here even on a clear day.
