Well disguised in tall underground S of path. Took a second visit to find it when a probing foot was eventualy successful in locating the hole dug out around it.

Penultimate trig en-route home after Litton Cheney Trig Baggers weekend. Found easily with just top surface of FBM visible in grass verge to side of new(ish) tarmac FP, so dug out a little turf and soil to raise its profile a little. Height tag missing otherwise good. Took some new measurements - see sketch attached.

We didn't know whether we'd find this one or not, given the mixed reports of it being removed/damaged/buried. So we were pleasantly surprised to quite easily find it, although it is somewhat submerged beneath vegetation and it would be nice to resurrect it!

A really nice find given that others had failed to find it.

Happy news, it's fine. It has survived the installation of a pavement designed to lead from the parking spot round to the railway station. It lies about two-thirds of the way along the grassy stretch immediately to the west of the parking place, just on the hedge side of the pavement. Only the bolt and the top of the pillar can be seen. It is in a dug-out small square area, and if that were to be filled in up to ground level, the pillar's topmost point would then be just beneath the ground. But it's OK right now

Thornford FBM has been removed or completely buried. Evidence of pavement widening, where it looks like the path foundation was dug out and lined with timber boards before being filled with foundation and tarmac. GPS placed me in the right place, and with the TUK app photos the pillar was not found. I fear this has been destroyed. The ditch was dry so I got down in to it and looked for evidence, there were several uncut large natural stones, and further up one which was certainly man cut. None in granite though. I'm not sure about the ditch's relationship in depth to the underground chamber though there was no evidence of penetration. http://youtu.be/bglJdoEgTEQ for a scene clip.

right location, no FBM.

Not the most interesting, but has to be done. Well covered with grass, had to do some clearing whilst walking here ! Photo shows position for future visitors :-)

Hidden underneath freshly mown grass on verge next to layby. Stone work is sound but as previously mentioned the top metal work has taken a bit of a hammering, maybe from the grass cutter?

On S verge, 3m S of road edge, 100m E of centreline of junction, just W of layby. Top metalwork a bit battered but block in good condition. 2013 update: buried (a few inches down) by recent footway construction. New OS sketch puts it 0.48m back from edge of footway, 21m W of end of layby, 11m E of field entrance.

No height marker, and doing its best to become a surface block.

On my first drive past to find a parking location without spotting the FBM, I thought this might be gone, but it is located in a dip in the grass verge. There is no height marked on the FBM.
