Thought I was going to struggle to find this one as after five minutes searching i hadn't turned it up, but then I recalled a comment about dumped conifer branches. i brushed a few of these aside and there it was.

Knowing the berntsen is 2 metres away, in line with the trees, was helpful in finding it.

My first Berntsen, five minutes down the road (on foot of course) from the FBM. About 6 feet directly in front of the last (small) tree, looking directly towards the railway bridge. No bolt on the top so it can be lifted off. No cars, on foot! Revisited 20/05/2007.
