Easy spot on exposed ground-level rock; top of bank running along NE side of road. Road is narrow but extended passing places work for brief parking.

Took the long route to this one, SatNav women sent me right round the houses and then the road was blocked, so in the end I parked and walked.

Is this trig the same as TP7213 ? And the type is listed here and on gps.gov.uk as bolt, when it is an FBM.
