Nice set of green painted railings. Dock still a bit of a problem within, but not too bad this time of year. The block could do with digging out a little. Height tag missing, otherwise all OK.

Located in a public park, but protected in a 'cage'. Good to see that it is respected, rather than just allowed to disappear, as happens to so many.

Previous mentioned weeds have started to die back and with a little 'weeding' today cleared the FBM for the photos. Took a friend along who'd lived in Dorchester all his life and he knew nothing of the FBM, so a surprise for him.

gps camera capture from the centre of the trig Nice for rabbits! GPS camera reference shot sat on the centre. Camera recorded 65.3m above sea level in the Exif data, spot on!

My first FBM. The docks have died down a bit. A misty, damp Autumn day - but who cares...I'm out visiting trigs!

Dorchester (R) By late October the docks have died off a bit.

Initially almost invisible because of towering dock plants, a big change from how others have seen this. After reaching through the railings and pulling the weeds aside a photo was possible. A local walker thought it was some sort of memorial so he got the explanation!

TP7196 Keep off the weeds! I'd already done some damage.

Located in "playpen" in nice park near church - dark at time of visit so no views.

Our first FBM. Easy to find in a Dorchester park Surrounded by railing, but covered in dead wood and leaves from the tree.

Parking is the biggest problem for this one. I ended up settling for my hotel car park then wandered back. Really quite a nice location.

In a lovely little park on the edge of Dorchester town centre with magnificent horse chestnut trees. Surrounded by railings. Weeds are growing around it rapidly! There is a DogOwners notice attached to the railings!

Situated in a well maintained park with its own beacon on the east side of Dorchester. The FBM sits inside the normal green railings. The statue of the Tolpuddle Martyrs outside the park is worth a look.
