No OS sketch or photo available - maybe one in the archives, but possibly of little use now anyway. Spent about half an hour probing the ground alongside the path for much of the length of where the field entrance may once have been. Unfortunately no sign of where the opening was, and no sign of the trig. 8 years now since it's been seen, will it ever surface from the murky depths again?

This is a seriously overgrown area, would take several hours to prove conclusivly the true current status.

Freshwater FBM Aux 1 rough ground adjacent to track/path
Freshwater FBM Aux 1 GPS did indicate the Bernsten might be in the field under the brambles. A difficult search area.

A forlorn hope but still had to be visited if I wanted to go to all the listed locations on the Isle of Wight. Ground far too overgrown to spot anything.

Had 3 attempts at this over the duration of visit, found nothing despite relatively low vegetation. Think that the fence has been replaced as there is no opening into the field as described by Phil Richards, so all my counting of the fenceposts may have been a waste of time!! Not convinced that it is gone as see no reason why it would be removed.

Spent half an hour trying to locate this but in the end the vegetation beat me. Probably there somewhere...

Having failed to find High Down and Freshwater FBM I tried this one - no luck thrashing about in the brambles and nettles.

Too much greenery.

I searched and prodded for ages but to no avail. The place is so overgrown that it's difficult even trying to align the previous photos and I couldn't be sure how many fence posts have been engulfed by the brambles!

Area quite overgrown with long grass, so without an additional clue this one will be hard to find.
