No OS sketch available for this one and measurements from previous loggers not quite precise enough for an easy find, but a bit of prodding of the ground soon produced results. I measured it at 1.7m N from roadside kerb and 1.2m E from the access kerb. Turf was replaced so a spade/trowel will be useful for subsequent baggers.

I got Digswell1 Gardener Glew to locate and dig out this Berntsen with a slightly damaged lid then recovered.

To Eton Dorney for the Olympics rowing - this a time filler in the 30 minute wait for a train home. Sadly totally unprepared, especially for the 2 inches of soil cover which seems to have accumulated since the last visit, so fingernails really suffered - but worth it for my first berntsen!

Found like others while caching. Didn't see it straight away as it's covered by a sod of turf now.

Found whilst out geocaching, this was a bit overgrown but only by grass so cleared it a little bit.

We really like this sort of trig and thanks to The Cache Hoppers for clearing the grass so it's visible.

Interesting little device, never seen before. We must admit to a frisson of excitement when we discovered what we were looking for!

Took us ages to find this one, and at times it was very cold with sleet falling, but we persevered and eventually found it. It was totally covered, but we found a spoiler pic which made our search productive. It is not uncoverd but the grass could quite easily grow over so would be good if future visitors could push the growth back a bit. First one of these we have seen - brilliant! Must find some more!
