On grassed area at side of St Nicholas car park. Cap missing and filled with sandy mud. Bit of a sorry state. Didn't find the OS sketch much use, but have included it here.

An easy find next to the parking ticket machine. It now remains open and is full of stand as lid has disappeared.

In St Nicholas Park car park that is immediately to the rear of the church. On the island with the Pay & Display machine. Almost buried under the summer grass but now a little more visible.

So frustrating not to be able to find this berntsen despite looking for over 10 minutes. Looked at the photos on the website when we returned home and realised we must have been standing on it at times!

Warwickshire. I knew that we were at the right location but with no prodding tools, failed to uncover it.

Not too difficult to find, biggest problem was try not to look too dodgy poking around in the grass on a busy saturday afternoon.

Heavy rain had left a thin layer of silt over the top of this Berntsen. Nevertheless straightforward find with the OS plan.

Easy car park findeven looks like you are picking up a ticket as you stop and go. Weather horrrid though with thick fog slowing things so much I skipped the nearby trig I was planning to visit en route.

Looked for this back in Feb, on a Saturday afternoon. Maybe not the quietest of times to visit! Found it this time though! Helped a bit by recent grass cutting. Think that there may be extra mud/soil around the marker, as it is below "ground level". It's a car park, the views are not up to much, but the gardens are well worth a visit with the displays of flowers.

Here! Line up the distant lamp post, the post with the box on, and there's the FBM!©Bear and Ragged

I didn't find it. I admit I'm not a GPS user, but thought with the photos of previous visitors I should find it. I'm sure I must of given it a good kick at some point, but even worse news if you hadn't 'paid & displayed' - the parking attendant was doing the rounds while I was there! Anyway couldn't stay here all day, had more promising things to find and I didn't want to explain myself to the attendant!

The grass was flattened over the berntsen, but soon revealed by a bit of footwork. It would have been more interesting if it had been in the pleasant riverside park, rather than this dull car park. GR to 10m only.

TP0621 location I should have marked it with something! The location is the dark patch left and down from the picture's centre.

This is obviously a popular spot - 3 visits in 4 days! Having cracked the OS link site, thanks to fasgadh, this was a breeze! Right by the 'Pay and Display' machine on a small piece of lawn.

Easy find, and the previous visitors paw marks all over it. Very close to the ticket machine (40p for an hour).

With a broken wrist from the previous weekends orienteering activities I thought this would be a weekend bereft of trigs. I did however persuade the family that a day out in Warwick was just what they wanted. Unfortunately I think they had visions of a tour round the famous castle rather than a hunt around in a car park for this Berntsen. It is on grassy island in the middle of the car park. Beware of strange looks from those parking their cars.
