This is an u usual FBM as its a baby trig rather than the usual shaped FBM. This baby must be very dangerous and attack passers by as there is a wee fence around it. Cheers.

Small Pillar in a blanket of ferns and nettle at what turned out to be quite a busy road junction. This is a gravity station with a rather unusual protective structure, made with vertical concrete posts and horizontal iron tubes, I rather like it. It's quite a nice location with some good views.

Easy find at road junction with parking on grass verge. FBM is a gravity station with somewhat ugly, but functional, concrete posts and metal poles protecting it. OS carried out the Gravity Survey from 1927-33 after they had revised the Magnetic Survey. It was "an accurate determination of the force of gravity throughout the kingdom" using pendulum apparatus. The work was "carried out sporadically over the 6-year period with only 66 stations observed". There, that's justified reading 'A History of the Ordnance Survey'!

Never seen one of these before so an extra point. A gravity FBM, whatever that is. Just like a little trig point with an FB but no spider, and a neat little fence round it. Easy to find at road junction. A bit overgrown.

An easy spot in its compound at the road junction. A lovely sunny day and the legs feeling great so a really good day out on the bike. Out via Uttoxeter, Stone, Audlem and Whitchurch with lunch at the Truckstop cafe at Prees Heath, and back via tern Hill, Cheswardine, Eccleshall, Stafford and Rugeley - 112 miles.

I liked this one. Got a fence round it for a change. It needs a sponsor, someoen to fuss over it, pint it and keep the ferns down. The biggest FBM I've seen

Well, it's the first away match of the season, so it's off to Chester to see The Imps self-destruct in the 95th minute. It's going to be a long season..... Anyway, time to get some trigs on the way and this little beauty is on the side of a lane, currently heavily disguised by bracken and thistles but protected in its own little patch by some railings. Very tall for an FBM and still some white paint on it. It's in a dip of the road so there are no real views in any direction.
