Easy to find, parked in small layby further up. You can see the top of the railed enclosure over the wall so it is very easy to find. Took photos over the wall. Didn't want to climb over as I had 2 loopy dogs with me.

FBM's getting a touch harder to come across these days for me so seem much more of a find than the average pillar. Bonus point for height tag still in place.

My first FBM. I have driven past this literally hundreds of times over the years without realising what was hidden over the wall from the Skipton-Embsay road, so having done some research on FBMs and Levelling Lines it was understandably a bit exciting meeting this one face-to-face. The height and modern Ordnance Survey plates are still in place and good to see this FBM secure behind strong green railings.

As others have said on the west side of the road. There is an OS sketch - H1SD9952, but a perfectly fine cut bench mark just to the south on east side of the road is marked by the hand drawn triangle, rather than the FBM. Nice that the height tag is still present.

Well it's there, in a field just at the bend in the road. No sheep today & far less 'cluttered' than in John's photo. The wall's simple enough to climb and all the previously mentioned damage is on the field side - looks likely to collapse in places unless it's repaired soon. No cars, on foot! Revisited 20/05/2007.

Once I realised I should be looking on the North of the road it all became easy and there was the green fencing showing over the wall top. I had to climb inside the fence to clear a mass of nettles to see the FBM and get some photos.
