#438 P#246 P2016#46. Another one of these dangerous English FBMs that need to be kept in a cage. Easy to spot but covered in brambles etc. Not the prettiest.

After my first bernsten just down the road this is another first for me. Quite an unusual object will now be on the lookout for more of these. Discovered with The Kosciows after completing a nearby Geocaching series.

Roadside FBM in its cage. Very overgrown and surrounded by nettles but easy to find.

Very overgrown, spent a while cutting back bramble, nettle and ivy, and clearing litter. FBM in good condition beneath it's covering of vegetation. Height tag in place - 113.90ft.

Overgrown but easy to find and see currently, S side of road opposite house. Height tag intact, with height apparently indicated although I couldnt read it nor get a legible photo in fairly poor light.

No idea what condition this one is in as it it totally covered in ivy. No tools to excavate to left as was.

The pen is sited opposite a farm by the side of a minor road as it crosses a small hill. It was clear of nettles but the pillar was covered in ivy and no details could be made out. To the east parts of the Cotswold scarp could be seen on the sky line. To the west the silos of Sharpness Docks can be seen and glimpses of the River Severn and the rolling farmland beyond.

As others have said this is very overgrown. Would be difficult to spot without the green playpen. Assume good underneath the moss and ivy. Needs some TLC.

Condition is probably good but too much vegetation around to tell. GR to 10m only.

I've logged condition as good although I didnt take a close look. Tree has fallen on top of the railings and pillar covered in moss.
