Parked at the NT car park and short stroll along road to the benchmark. Undergrowth reclaiming it a little but spotted quickly. Cleared it as best we could. Some nice views from this block.

Needed to batter the nettles here. FBM has just escaped being crushed by fallen wall.

In head high nettles and other plants. Wall has fallen and just missed the fbm. Lovely building made of flint.

Not great views from the trig, which is slightly overgrown, but there was new born lambs in the field opposite. Such fun seeing them bounce around.

After attending the nearby Geocaching CITO event I nipped up the hill to find this FBM. Although hidden by the undergrowth it's in good order.

Hard to find in the nettles and undergrowth! Original height plate [303.56] still in place. Slight chunk of concrete missing. Near barn wall.

Quick visit whilst passing by. Nearly hiden by the nettles so we approached with caution.

Easy to find in the depths of winter - by wall to SE of barn - but still had to remove some brambles to see it properly. Top rear left corner chipped, but nice to see original height info.

My first FBM! GPS took me to the spot, it's next to the wall of the old (NT) barn and was well proteced by stingers and I didn't get that close as I was wearing shorts.

Wow. this took a bit of finding at this time of year. My gps was pointing to the southern side of the farm track but I guessed that if it was still here it would be in amongst them nettles and brambles. Ten minutes later and many stings and scratches I found it. Message to self to not wear shorts next time.

A short walk from the car park up the road. Two firsts for me here… an FBM that is not surrounded by a fenced enclosure and the first FBM that I have found that still has the original height data label attached. Apart from that, nothing out of the ordinary. It is still in very good condition and currently, still very accessible.

Classic 2GL FBM, in excellent condition, complete with height tag 303.65 ft. Almost totally hidden by brambles, but the blackberries tasted excellent. Flush Bracket 2436 is close by.

We don't normally bother if theres no FB involved but we saw this by accident after going to tell the farmer that one of his very young lambs had got separated from its mother and was in the wrong field (noticed on our walk to The Comp). We took a photo anyway! (not digital though!). FBM has a GPS plaque.

My first FBM, It was sitting in the long grass alongside some farm buildings, a short walk from TP0430 (Frog Firle). The datum mark shows a height of 303.65 feet.
