Bagged as YSM004 Great Bedwyn. A nicely protected FBM in a lovely wee village. We were both absolutely starving by now and didn't like the look of the curled up sarnies in the local shop so we found a great pub called The Three Tuns and had an excellent meal, pint of prawns, chips and mustard coleslaw, lovely, although the garlic aioli was very very garlicky and we both regretted eating as much as we did of it later on!

Nothing really to add other than to confirm that it is still there in the condition previously described.

Travelled to Dover from Bristol for a Geocaching road trip and bagged 7 trigs along the way. This was the first. Easy park and bag here.

A pillar (Terrace Hill), an intersected station (St Katharine's Church, Savernake) and finally this FBM made my morning's walk full of variety (plus the remains of two railway stations.) Later a satisfying 3-0 win for the Town v Notts County capped the day.

Approximate time. FBM sits in a triangular-shaped gravel-surfaced area in the middle of Great Bedwyn village. No height tag. Further detail to follow...

Remembered to look up possilble FBMs before leaving home! been through Great Bedwyn several times, even since starting trigging. As well as cycling I've also been here by boat on the Kennet & Avon.

Visiting as this is also a YSM geocache, and other nearby geocaches, as on my way to stay with my aunt in nearby Wallingford. Delightful pretty village too.

I found this FBM as part of the virtual YOSM geocache. Easy parking, short walk to FBM, quick photo, took co=ords and then returned to the car.

The FBM is sited amongst planters on the island of a small roundabout in the centre of this pleasant village. It appears to be in good condition and has an OS GPS plate. The pubs, shop and houses of the adjacent streets are all that can be seen from the site.

It was raining gently and the village centre was free of locals wondering what the idiot with the camera and GPSr was doing to their flower display. They had at least bowed to good taste and removed the planter from the top of the FBM. It was now visible in all its glory(?) surrounded by a display of horticultural eloquence. Itís in very good condition and given its location, looks well set to remain so.

Strange that it's on the middle of a traffic island, but the locals have put out lots of planters to enhance the area.

Been past this place many times over the years and never realised that there was a trig point here. A breeze block has been placed next to the FBM to increase its area and a large flower urn similar to the ones in the photos placed on top.Possibly someone is trying to protect the FBM as the urn could have been placed elsewhere in the gravelled area.

Found today on a 24 mile cycle/walk along the K&A canal. Nice example of a fundamental benchmark. Its in a little chained off area - looks ike the locals have made a feature of it. Also logged as a YOSM cache.
