Found easily despite the summer growth, although unsuccessful in finding the nearby Berntsen because of the summer growth! No archaeological tools with me for that one.

I was planning on doing this on my return journey home but sat nav wummin sent me down this way from Perth. Decided to stop today instead. Parked in layby and walked back. FBM was quickly spotted in the grass. Not a nice day to stop for a trig due to weather but every day is a nice day to stop for a trig, if you find it.

Thought this was going to be more difficult than it was, with the long wet summer grass, but it was spotted as soon as we got out the car.

Nothing really to add to previous visit reports other than to confirm that it is still there and in the condition described.

Approx. 6m in from edge of road. No height tag. Quite prominent now road works completed, will be hidden in undergrowth in time though.

Stopped here as I was driving right past and is also a YOSM. The ground is all nice and smooth with it sticking out of the mud. Credit to the groundworkers for leaving it safely in place.

The land has been restored with care following the bridge restoration project. At the time of visit the FBM was clearly visible, standing proud of the bare earth. Obviously treated with great respect by the contractors.

Good condition FBM albeit fairly moss-covered located about 7m back from the road south of the bridge. Heavy vegetation plus slightly dubious GPS fix made finding a bit tiresome although 10 minutes of grid traversing the area made me trip over it. Score! Height tag missing, as usual..
