Came for the trigpoint and the geocache. Could not find the latter. Smell of gas meant I did not stay long, but stung by unsuspecting nettle which 18 hours later still hurt.

Not the best looking FBM I have visited lots of nettles and cars whizzing by. Great fun setting up the tripod for the usual selfie.

The fence enclosing the area is rapidly decaying and the height plate is missing. Area is a little overgrown but grass looks to have been cut back a little. Travelling home after being in Faringdon for a wedding.

I've seen this one many times driving past but it's a very nasty junction with frequent accidents and not sensible to stop. I happened to be cycling past this evening so quickly stopped by the barrier and took a couple of photos. Rather overgrown with nettles this time of year. Playpen rusty but in otherwise good condition.

Have driven past this YSM009 and TP many times as it is on my direct route from Devon home to see my mum near Oxford. Parked in the side road opposite and eventually managed to cross the busy road safely, and easily found FBM inside the fencing although obviously the area needs weeding!

An easy find but access needs care as the A420 is a very busy road. Getting into the cage was easy... getting out again with a broken collar-bone was a little more difficult.

Me with the FBM... now I have to get out. ©pharisee
