Just a 'drive by' , FBM eminently visible. Passed by after visiting nearby Fourteen Acre wood to view the white and blue 'carpet' of Wood Anemones and Bluebells which abound this time of year.

Found at the side of the road at a junction. A straight-forward find.

Nothing really to add other than to confirm that it is still there and in the condition previously described.

Once I'd tramped the nettles down this was an easy find as I'd parked adjacent to it. It looks like a badger is digging behind the FBM as can be seen from one of the photos I took. The ivy is doing a good job of hiding the slight damage.

On a road junction and easily spotted as the grass cutters had been round in the last couple of days. One top corner has been lost but otherwise OK. OS anti-vandal plaque. No views. Geocache behind roadsign on opposite side of road!

The first benchmark we have found. Large chip on front left-hand corner, but otherwise in good condition. Easily visible from lane at this time of year.

Quite surprised to find that this was a 'mini pillar'. I had expected to find just a rivet !

The hedge is a bit more overgrown than last time. It now seems to be missing the height marker, but I only got a picture though the brambles so not quite sure.

Located close to a road junction in a very quiet country lane. I didn't see another vehicle all the time I was there. The marker has been damaged by having a chunk knocked off its front left-hand corner. Otherwise all is well. I did notice a burrow in the earth behind the marker, probably a rabbit. I wonder if they've found their way into the space below the marker. The marked height is 168.28 ft.
