No 4 today and exactly as others have described. Not too hard to find but you've got to get close at this time of year to see it!

The mast and the holly bush mark the spot!

Nothing really to add other than to confirm that it is still there and hidden in the holly bush.

t was hidden in a hedge a 50m from the road, you could just see the top but would have had to know it was there as i did, been passing it since the early 80's, metal bung in place and the hedge cuter has a good go at it each year..

Took me several attempts to find it, as it is buried within a dense hedgerow.

The hedge trimmer had been out so it was easy to find (still quite overgrown though). FB faces south. Plug with indented lettering.

Hidden in a hedge, next to a reservoir and radio mast, access gained in the field to the south of the mast. Cleared some ivy off. The whole layout is identical to "Crapps Beacon" [Spooky!] Cap intact. GPS Elevation Reading: 205M
