Damaged and neglected. Protective surround railings all gone; concrete posts awry; brickbats strewn around; damage to 3 top edges; height tag missing - this is a sad little FBM. Farmer loading neeps, happy for me to view 'as long as I didn't get in the way', of which I assured him I most definitely wouldn't - due to the impressive machinery and large lorries involved!

Found location thanks to other logs, but it is completely covered this time of year I could just make out the top edge, so gone with others as far as condition goes.

We asked at the nearby house for permission, the gentleman said he had cleared it out last year!! Top is damaged, looks like a hedge cutter, and this has slighly damaged the stud plate on the top. Has the Ordnance Survey plate on the side fitted in 1999

E side of farm track, near farmhouse. 1m E of track, between concrete posts, obscured view through brambles. Top slightly damaged? No height tag?

There was nobody in at the farm so I had a look for it. I spotted it through a part of the brambles less leafy than the rest. I couldn't see enough to judge its condition.

TP0548 The best of three picture attempts.

Just another quick visit.Brambles still there but not quite so dense.Concrete post is a giveaway and in the sunlight the FBM is visible.Shame it's so neglected.

Not easy to find this time of year as others have found.Those brambles look very nasty.

Wire fence, but that hasn't kept the brambles out. Just as battered as the OS photo implies.

Luckily farmer came by and pointed out where it is. Bramble heaven.
