Sitting in an overgrown playpen so some gardening required. Parked down the hill in Starkholmes to enjoy a walk around the narrow roads in the sunshine.

I'm setting my record straight, I didn't realise there were two FBM's in Riber, my earlier log for this one was for the other one. Bad research on my part. On a walk with my two mates, Tracker Dog and Rubber Ball, came up from Holloway. (Visit Maycock Butchers in Holloway, their meat pies and scotch eggs are delicious.) This FBM is easily found in its cage and is in good condition. Seven marks for historical surroundings.

Granite. Height tag 797.28'. Arrived just as srichy20 was leaving. We did indeed give the playpen a tidy up before we left.

Not been up here for about 25 years since I came to watch hill climb races. A point in favour of the hobby - taking one to places you wouldn't otherwise go. An FB in the absence of any likely pillars to get my "fix"!

Conrete block is nocely fenced off in a small green at the road junction. Although the block has what could be a fluch bracket - this has no number on it. There is a metal plaque on the top which gives the height above sea level 797.28 feet in this case.
