Easy to find, thanks to the stone, which is still on the wall above it. Felt it under my shoe. Still buried but looks in good condition.

Couldn't find it (should have checked the logs before setting out) then got lucky as the brother of the guy who owns the place was working on a car in the barn. A vague memory of it (apparently "they" came and "dug it up" about 8 years ago to "check it"!?) and a few minutes of kicking back the ivy and it was found. Right by the metal sheeting as in CJO's photo.

Located just outside church yard, buried to top edge appeared to be in good condition.

Tricky one to locate, so much farm/building debris lying around. I knew it was close to the stone boundary wall, but still a pig to find. Buried up to its top surface which had a light covering of weed and grass, currently next to some dumped semi-circular pig-pen type material. Height tag missing.

Many thanks to the last finder - the stone is still on the wall to show the way. Looks to be in good condition too.

Looking good!

Buried in building debris. Looking at the photos this is the same material that just gets moved around. The breeze block under the asbestos piping had me fooled for 30 seconds. I placed a stone on the wall above the FBM for future visitors. On the basis that this will also get moved, the FBM is in line with the central stone pillar between the two stain glazed windows of the church which can be seen over the wall in the photo.

Calbourne FBM Note stone on wall next to my left arm and the stain glass windows on the church. My left foot is on the FBM.

Should have read up on this one first. GPS seemed to be leading me over the churchyard wall - couldnt believe it was hidden up over there. What we did find - OK I admit it, my wife spotted it, was a very well-defined bench mark on the right hand side of the main door of the church.This must be the bolt that PhilRichards mentioned, I logged it as SZ4249786567. Not a wasted effort after all !

Much of the rubbish had been cleared and the FBM was clearly visible and easy to photograph.

FBM now easily visible although quite a lot of detritus is still around. Easy to park nearby.

Revisit, erm by bear only. It was obviously under the piles of scrap on the footpath, hence missing it the first time. No height tag

Easily found: presumably used to be hidden. Vgc, no height tag; the usual GPS and OSBM plaques. W side of footpath at base of churchyard wall, ~opposite footpath marker post, beside a stack of steel sections, 14m from nearest gatepost.

Left to my own to search at will at that time of the morning an extensive search of the graveyard and surrounding footpath revealled nothing. I may have found evidence in the form of a hole about the right size where it may have once been hence my DM rating.

Like Phil (i'm a bit late logging this...) I searched the graveyard and the path behind it, no sign of it.
