No OS sketch and a lack of measurements for the 12 previous loggers that found it meant it was more difficult than it should have been to locate, so here we go: 2.45m W of a point equidistant between sign's posts; 2.25m from edge of 'main' road; 1.85m from edge of 'minor' road (leading to the chapel). It's a metal plate in the ground, no need to spend half an hour hunting for it (but is that part of the allure?).

I spent a good 5-10 minutes prodding the ground with my walking pole but no joy.

My first experience of trig pointing when shown this FBM by Shamus. I think I like this sport.

Found easy enough with a bit of a poke in the grass.I have visited the Celtic Chapel and well up the lane in the past and would recommend a look. The clottie trees are very eyrie on a damp day.

A picture is provided on the OS page - there we were standing spot on the spot in the picture BUT all there is is mud. It looks as if one has to dig for it.
