Like many passive stations the location isnít inspiring but easy to find despite the long grass.

Armed with CJOs log "Using the inner gatepost faces as datums 8.05m from the right and 4.85 from the left and 3.70 m from the white line at the edge of the road" and the OS sketch, hoped this would be a quick find, as it happens Mr U2 went straight to it in the grass not needing either.

Still pretty easy to find thanks to CJO's measurements and in good condition. It just had a little bit of grass hiding it.

Good measurements from CJO, took me straight to it. Light covering of grass only.

As we started our probing exercise, the land owner arrived on his tractor. After politely asking what we were doing he voluntered that he had indeed seen an OS marker plate when the new gate way was being built, and it was near our search area. He picked up the spare probe and assisted with the search. Some 10 minutes later the bernsten was located. Using the inner gatepost faces as datums 8.05m from the right and 4.85 from the left and 3.70 m from the white line at the edge of the road.

Thanks to the directions given by others. I parked on the gravel by the gates and bagged this double quick time. Slight sweeping of grass and soil required but easy to find.

Busy road - nearly missed the field entrance. Easy to find at the moment.

Second time lucky for this one - seemed so easy this time - raypool's image was a great help.

Easily spotted on the wide verge of a busy road. The verge side scrub was being cleared at the time of my visit. The site only offers a view of the nearby fields and of the pub just down the road, which serves a marvellous pint of Guinness.

All very overgrown, but in the end I found it. 3m from road, and 3m E of the hardcore of the drive leading to the gate. If you look in the right place, it is obvious, as it is on the surface. But at this time of year, it is far from straightforward.

Parked next to the gate a few feet away. Quick find but beware lots of traffic.

Like the two previous visitors, I didn't have the time to hunt for this. Spent 10 minutes hacking away at the vegetation but to no avail. Definitely a winter visit needed.

Grass too long, my time too short, so I didn't find it.

What with Geocaching & Geographing I've not done any trigs recently so I stopped off at this one en route to work today. Weather improving so I must get out more!

Vegitation cleared - 20 March 2006
This is the time of year to visit

Its probably there but vegetation has grown up since IainMac's visit and having spent five minutes removing weeds etc, I gave up. Will revisit on another occasion when I've got more time.

Looks slightly lucky to have survived. Near field entrance which has been improved.
