Second time lucky for this one, yesterday i read the logs and carefully measured out the 3m from the culvert and 2.5m from the road, no luck! so gave up - got back to hotel and read logs properly this time and relalised i was going in the wrong direction - twit! :) Second attempt no problems found after a few minutes of proding still located under small slab (replaced) all appears in good condition.

W verge, 2.5m from road edge, 3m from end of ditch. Bits of paving slab still in place but was covered by a thin layer of turf. Took 5 mins to find even with iainmac photos but dimensions should help. I could find no sketch for this one; RodS points out it is here

Lots of probing but no success. Had ianmac's photos but to no avail. No slab in place now.

Much evidence of others looking so added my own prods. Few minutes to find. N.B. Is now covered with a piece of paving slab found nearby - not the big bit.

Spend a good half hour hunting for this without success, before bad light stopped play. It's almost certainly still there, though, but obscured by vegetation. Still in OS Passive Station database (now as not H2TL1399), and sketch, still at (!), shows it as 3.00m from edge of road, 3.70m from face of culvert, which is where I was was looking. Will return sometime with measuring tape and prodder.

Searched length of the hedgerow but no evidence of Berntsen. Entry has been deleted from OS GPS Passive Station Database so it seems unlikely that this benchmark still exists.
