Still nicely uncovered and found using the distances in jonglew's log. A busy rod to cross that's for sure. Take care.

Paced it at 10m from LP and 2m from road edge and there it was with a very light covering of grass. Had the OS sketch (good insurace) but not needed this time.

I am pleased to say this is in position and at exactly the distances noted in the OS drawing. I took the distance from the lamp post and prodded beside the obvious hole. It is beside the hole noted by others and covered in grass but not buried.

Here it is

I believe this has now gone.I had sketch and photos from previous visit (2005) and found a "Bernsten"sized hole in exactly the right place............but I was having a particularly bad day so will go with "Possibly Missing" ! Congrats to Captain Gore-Tex, now I must return! I did say I was having a bad day!!

Could not resist another visit as I was passing and I found it. I could not believe I missed it the first time. After all I did have a GPS, grid reference, photo and sketch! Used Etrex Legend (s/w 3.7 & 6m reported accuracy) to record waypoint in DMS (WGS84) then converted using OSTN02. Input N 512818.6, W 32922.3, 87m. Output E 296641, N 175816, 35m hence ST9664175816.

I could not find the "Bernsten" but the sketch and photo on the OS website convinced me I was within a metre or so. OS coordinates for this point are N51,28,18.5175 W3,29,22.3165, 139.917m (ETRS89). Used Etrex Legend (s/w3.70) set to DMS&WGS84 to record position (5m reported accuracy) and then converted to OSTN02 as I find this the most accurate way. Recorded N51,28,18.6/W3,29,22.3 ht95m after a five minute average. OSTN02 conversion then gave N296641.197, E175815.669,43.215. Tantalisingly, the WAAS kicked in reporting 2m accuracy but locked out again before I took a reading.

GPS site photo looked a gimme but I left the sketch on the office desk. Probed a bit from memory and GPS reading but without success.
