I initially read this as "Disease Risk - Keep Out", but having realized it we me that was supposed to be the risk, decided to ignore it. Green scaffold-type railings all intact, located to N side of farm track. Soil build up leaving approx 4" above ground. Height tag missing.

LOL (from now seeing the previous logs for the first time), didn't see any signs at time of visit - but it was dark! However on walking back down track to road as stoped by (persubambly) the farmer, was asked what doing, said just visiting the OS marker, to which I receive a mutter and shake of head, and he drives off... Actual Marker appeared to be good condition (but as usual no height plaque) but kinda buried under grass.

Likewise deterred by the You are a Disease Risk sign (it's next to a pig farm), I called at the farm. Farmer initially suspicious but eventually said I was OK to walk up the track. FBM grass-covered but intact with usual green railings, OSBM & GPS plaques. Slight damage to top stud. Obvious on N verge just past stack of bales. Before visiting, read up on Wind farms :-) Score of 6 reflects overall curiosity, plus lengthy discussion of the merits of Clay-lump houses - a local speciality it seems

2nd drive past - I remain deterred by the 'Keep Out' signs, and the OS 'permission required' tag.
