Parked adjacent to the salt bin, and found FBM esily whilst pathetically failing to spot the nearby geocache. The first one like this I've seen ... well , seen half of !

Only half of the BM is showing, being partially covered by a bright blue road salt bin! Appears to be a stainless steel disc. Discovered by chance after finding a nearby 'YOSM Challenge Cache'

260m E of the FBM on S side road just before road turns N. Easy find with OS sketch, a few prods produced the hollow metallic sound typical of a Berntsen; just a thin covering of grass.

There was a geocache near this one. Quite a search here but perseverance paid off, it was very well covered over.

I was completing a challenge cache at this location and didn't realise this FBM was here until I was actually here myself searching for the cache. I hadn't read the cache pag properly that informs you that t's here. My first FBM.

most (all) location points from OS sketch have moved/gone. Still easy enough to find. 13.6 m from footpath sign, 3.75m from gatepost. Elaborate church spire to SE.

Many thanks to fasgadh for the picture of the site because as soon as I saw it I knew why I hadn't been able to find it when I went earlier in the month. Yes, you've guessed it - I had parked the car on top of it!! Good condition and very easy to spot!

Somebody had been here recently. Like the nearby Grimley rivet,it was easily found, under a couple of leaves. No digging or poking required. So thats what a Berntsen looks like. A bit bigger than I expected.

Bromsgrove FBM Aux1 A real live Berntsen, in the wild.

Found the spot where it should have been but there had been quite a bit of road re-surfacing and I couldn't find it. It might have been concealed in the grass verge somewhere but I hadn't got time to spend digging up the grass! Not a particularly interesting spot.
