Had a little root around for it, but wasn't totally sure whether I was actually looking in the right place.

(441) Another relatively easy find - thanks to the last visitors handiwork. The ground was incredibly waterlogged though, and the Berntsen was pretty much submerged. As fast as I could drain enough of the water away to then be able to take a photo, the hole almost immediately filled back up. But a good one to tick off the list.

Bit more tricky to locate than the North Cave surface block due to the ditch, consequent wet ground and no OS sketch. Counter-intuitively the ditch runs at right-angles to the road, with the Berntsen being located at its NE edge (RHS looking from the road). It's slightly at an angle and so the position is almost certainly compromised from the original installation, hence 'damaged'. Measured at 4.2m from verge/road boundary.

This has had a lucky escape as a draining gully has been cut along side and it looks like it might of been hit although condition still looks good.

Having met up with Brisey on the south side of the humber and visited a trig point the question arose as to what to tackle next. There wern't any pillars in that area left for me or him so it was either an afternoon of intersected stations and alike or this, a visit to his nemasis. The reduction in the Humber Bridge toll charges made it bareable and 30 minutes later we both arrived. The good news that greeted us was that the bramble bushes had been cleared. The bad news was that there was signs that farm vehicles and alike had been driving over the area making it muddy and compact. It was under there somewhere but how far down we didn't know. We took a measurment from the roadside using previously posted meanurments and a best guess at where the roadside actually was. There was no sign of the gate post, cairn or anything so we took a guess at that too. It was then a cace of getting down and dirty in the mud. Our tools weren't ideal. I had a relativly ineefective trowel and Brisey a paint scraper. We both however had long handled scewdrivers - Perengrinus would be proud of us! We proded around for a long time. One hole we dug looked promising but after ten minutes digging through the roots all we found was stones. I wandered around a bit wondering whether we had got the measurments right and when I looked around Brisey looked to be on to something. A shout of success soon went up thogh it took another ten minutes digging to excavate it properly. How fitting that it should have been Brisey who found it after the challenges he had faced on previous visits. A final wash with some water from a bottle and a polish with a towel left it in fine condition to be photographed. the measurments we had made were surprisingly accurate, only 9" out in fact. I'm so glad we found it.

A joint effort with Father Ted, and success for me at last after the unfortunate episode in 2006. The ground was very soft with water standing in patches and had recently been worked over by a vehicle that had pressed a number of stones into the ground and investigation holes tended to fill with water quite quickly so prospects were not initially good. However, prodding around the rough measurements made by Ted eventually bore fruit. The Berntsen was about 3-4 inches down and was left uncovered and marked by a stick stuck in the ground.

TP0601 Very muddy ground!

Due to the amount of vegetation on site this took some finding. Cleared the site previous evening but it became to dark to explore fully. Returning the next day with information gleaned from Ted's log, the importance of which we did not recognise before visiting the site, and downloading the "correct" sketch, we discovered that we had already found the location of the Bernsten but as it was covered in several layers of stones we had not dug through all the layers the previous evening. Bernsten is 15cm deep, 4.5 m from the road edge, 7.25m from the missing gatepost. We marked the location of the gatepost with a small cairn and a salvaged 2inch post. Thanks to Ted for recognising the misfiled sketch on the OS database.

South Cave FBM Aux 1 dense brambles cover the whole site, non existant gate post and road edge are the key to finding this one. Screwdriver marks the spot, just in front of my right foot.

Visted the FBM at South Cave so thought I would have a look at this one. No chance - see photo.

Station record is at H1SE9132 but this seems to correspond to the sketch at H2SE9031. Using the sketch, I probed along a line offset from the road by 4.50m and at the correct location eventually found a Berntsen hidden under soil, grass, roots and stones. Would guess this replaced the original bolt.

I'm back, but even more overgrown with brambles, so no chance. The gate has gone since my last visit.

Without an OS diagram, this was more in hope of an accidental find with the aid of my GPS than a serious dig. In the end, the accident was to me - a sharp dry grass stalk poked me in the eye as I was searching, causing my eyeball to bleed. Fortunately the bleed stopped fairly quickly, otherwise I would not been able to see well enough to drive home. I'll be back...

TP0601 location? My GPS pointed me to the area to the right of the picture where I had several false finds because of large stones!

May be reduced to strings and tape measure to find.
