A little tricksy as grass long and initially searching too far into the bramble. It is precisely 2.75m from LHD post of the Sancreed sign; 3.1m from RHD post; and 2.25m from road edge. By the garden spade in all 3 photos.

attempted day before but got drenched looking. borrowed shovel from campsite and found after a while - covered with long grass. happy as did not want to miss out on one that previous loggers said was easy.

Surprisingly easy for a Berntsen. Clear on the surface - to the left of the left hand post of the Sancreed sign.

A quick find before going to the beacon.

The Bernsten was hiding in the long grass of the verge of a lane entering the north-west of the village of Sancreed to the west of Penzance. Initially I spent 10 fruitless minutes looking for it before deciding to give up and investigate the bolt on top of Sancreed Beacon. It was found almost immediately on my return. A nearby gateway looks eastward across farmland. Mounts Bay could be seen in the east and Castle-an-Dinas and Ding Dong Mine in the north.

Difficult find, long grass and soil (cleared). About 2.5m from left post of sign.

The road sign (Sancreed) has now been replaced. Very easy find as very visible today in the verge.

Return visit and this time success. I took Shakey with me to help look and I must admit that he was rather more determinded than me and was the one who found it in the end.Fantastic to knock it of my list at last.It took us 5/10 mins to find but is in good condition and well hidden even at this time of year.

First proper visit to a way point. Looked with Shamus for approx 10 mins armed only with a photo marking location but difficult to work out perspective. Just about to leave when evenually found it. Good condition as well.

This was one of three that I couldn't find on this trip. I had one of the photos supplied by Nr but still could not find it.I am quite sure I must have stood on it at least once! We poked the ground with my walking pole and even took a machettee to the bracken but no Berntsen,and I thought this would be an easy one! We gave up in the end much to the relief of some of the locals. I will be back!

For some reason this one wasn't so difficult to find. Its been uncovered recently perhaps by a badger. Some delinquent has removed the "Sancreed" sign but I've taken a few pictures of the posts in the event that anyone else wished to locate the berntsen

Nice photo (OS) but with no theodolite in view could be anywhere.

Another of those Berntsens that we believe to be hidden under a concrete plug.
