easy find thanks to previous photos, the key being to find the missing stones in the stone wall capping.

Berntsen in good condition at previously noted spot. Mostly uncovered with a loose covering of leaves. Easy parking beside it.

My first berntsen! Situated next to crossroads of minor roads. Needed a bit of earth moving to find it.

Another fairly easy one to find if you study the photos although vegetation growth will readily hide it if its not kept back. Its immediately in front the part of the wall where the top stones are missing. Passable arable view to the west.

Used andyc's photo with the road sign, and found it without much difficulty with my tent peg. It was covered, but still close to the surface.

Northumberland. I had tried to find this in 2007 but had not been successful. This time I was luckier.

Needed to dig down about 4 inches to get to this one. It is next to a very large rock that we dug up first when prodding for it. Have drawn up a new sketch that i will post later. In the meantime it is 1.20m from the gap in the wall, 7.15m from the signpost and 7.05m from the gatepost to the North.

With the link to the OS site down we were left with just clues in the previous logs, Teasel's photo, a tape measure and an umbrella! It had become buried again in the past two years but after ten minutes prodding with an unbrella we found it!

This has been uncovered fairly recently, as picture shows. Used to live about 400 yards from here, but as I was only little didn't realise this was here.

Small world! It was us who visited this trigpoint just a few days before Walker Dan. We actually visited it twice... We quickly gave up on the first visit and drove to the nearest garden centre to buy a 7.5m tape measure. With the aid of the OS sketch map, we found the approximate location, then by systematically digging the point of my walking stick into the turf, managed to locate something metal beneath the grass. Digging down an inch or two uncovered a slightly larger than usual Berntsen. We'd never have found it without the tape measure!

Found it on the 2nd atempt after buying a tape maesure and digging up the turf! Proud of this one. Are all FBM Aux 1's so difficult to find?
