Out from Cambridge YHA for day. Easily found at quarry entrance. Overgrown by bushes which could be pulled aside to view pillar.

Nothing really to add to previous visit reports other than to confirm that it is still there in its 'cage' and well hidden by much wild growth.

Very overgrown. At entrance to quarry. Playpen in good condition. Difficult to see the FBM, I took a photo of what I thought was it but I may have been looking at the wrong end of the enclosure.

Playpen FBM - appears in good condition as far as I could see as the Playpen is very overgrown. Farmland area and views.

If you poke around at this one you get a warning over a tannoy that says "You are being monitored by close circuit cameras. If you are not authorised to be in this area you must leave immediately". How rude, I thought. But I went anyway.

Cycled up from boat at Wicken Fen before visiting Five Miles from Anywhere pub. Vegetation has certainly grown since the photos on this page were taken.

Totally unsure which of these is which, so decided to log both sites just in case! Surely this information should be merged?

From the OS photo of a tripod inside the FBM enclosure I'd assume this and TP7250 are one and the same. Can the data be merged?

I assume that either this or the Wicken (r) entry is incorrect, and that this one has replaced the (r) entry. If so the two logs on the (r) entry should be moved to this one.
