Parked up opposite. Used photos to get in correct position then a quick find in the (getting) longish vegetation.

Parked on the road to Newbiggin then up the central reservation to bag the FBM with its wooden playpen then back done to get Penrith FBM Aux 1 with no problem with vegetation at this time of year.

Spent a long time in the wrong place then eventually realised I was focusing on the wrong grit bin! Eventually found it under grass cuttings from a recent mow.

Forked tree and grit bin good indicators in light of no OS sketch, but it was exposed so an easy spot.

Just off the A66 on our way to Borrowdale. Turned off, remembering to look for a grit box & saw 3 almost straight away. It's the one nearest the main road you're interested in & Ted's forked tree is nearer still. A strip of grass verge had been cut recently but it wasn't enough , the Berntsen eventually appeared amongst long grass & under the hay.

My first Berntsen.Easy find due to Ted's forked tree.Slight bit of high grass trampling needed around Berntsen for photo.If it helps,it's 10 paces from green grit bin towards forked tree.

I wasn not expecting this one to be difficult but it sure was. I thought that the ten figure grid regerence provided would be accurate but it was not and spent an age prodding around without any luck and getting very wet in the process. I had given up and hod gone off to find the FBM and gave it one more go on returning. Then it clicked that I had an iPhone with me so accessed the photos and bingo - Teds photo made it wasy to locate near the forked tree. thanks Ted.

Good condition Berntsen that the Berntsen-sniffing child wanted to see if he could bag! Easy enough! The grass hadn't been cropped back as far as the last time I visited it so minor bit of rummaging involved.

The grass on the verge was trimmed back so very easy find. In good condition. Just across the A66 is the suspected missing Stainton surface block.

Found on the drive past, I parked in the nearby residental road and wandered around. Its location was nice and obvious, I delete the screen shot with my coords on it so have none to contribute.
