40m along track and about 5m south. Hidden from path by a tree and 3 saplings. Once found it was actually clear. There seems to be agreement that the OS grid ref is 20m out.

Cleared a few freshly fallen and older branches from ontop and about the FBM. No change since last visit.

Hidden by broken branches, but GPS took me straight to it. In good nick, no height tag.

Spotted a couple of things first that looked like the FMB before spotting the real thing tucked away. Looks like it's in good condition overall and I'd imagine most people overlook it when going for a walk in the forest!

Log #94. I parked a little bit to the south, in front of the forestry commission gate, and walked along to the bench mark. Slight chip out of corner, but not enough to mark as damaged. [ExP-87/MiP-0/BM-7]

A bit covered by moss and leaves but otherwise in good working order. My first find of a FBM!

Doing the geocache at this one. Took a while to spot it. I haven't seen many of these wee baby trigs. Great woods.

Managed to find in the dark thanks to Africajim's directions, trusty GPS and iphone for providing the light lol. FBM covered in moss as can be seen in pic,

Poor quality pic, but its a phone and taken in the dark

Showed Africajim his first ever FBM (and my third). Hidden under moss and forest debris but no bother to a sharp eye and a GPS.

Another stripe on my anorak please...

Now I'm an anorak! Just need to find one of those rivet things!

That's me at the FBM FBM? Sounds like something from Thunderbirds!
