Richard opened the door as Mr PKB entered the gate and said you have come to look at the ordnance survey marker? I'll get my gum boots on and take you to it. And so he did.

fascinating chat about whole load of stuff with Richard, owner of the bungalow at No8 Carter Lane. He gladly showed me the fbm in his quarry garden. Utterly bizarre place for an fbm a good three metres below surrounding countryside. What on earth is the purpose of them?

Friendly owner. Luckily he was coming out of the door as I passed by. Was escorted through the old chalk quarry that he was turning into a "forest garden" Said he enjoyed people visiting. Interesting location.

The owner of the house very kindly took us down into the garden. The modest bungalow opens up to reveal a large extension and a vast garden, which the owner is working on in his retirment. The site is an old quarry which is slowly being landscaped. Several minutes walking reveals the FBM, after the owner had to backtrack because we went the wrong way.

Back garden of 8 Carter Ln, on dip in bank above NE corner of old quarry, now part of garden. Blank height tag, GPS plaque but no OSBM plaque. Visited by prior arrangement with owners, set up by TedA, with Ted, iainmac and RichardH. Owners stated the OS no longer use it, having levelled up to the Aux1 Berntsen by the Bempton Lane allotmemnts.

Third time lucky! Previous attempts 24 November and 8 December 2007. Grid ref indicated a triangular region bounded by Carter Lane, Castle Crescent and Bempton Lane. Wooden fence, approx 6ft high, on Carter Lane with houses around the rest of the perimiter with no obvious access to the interior. Glimpse over fence implied a sharp drop - designated on www.old-maps.co.uk as 'old chalk pit'. OS passive station H1TA2270 includes a sketch but no photo. Spot heights on map indicated that the FBM was approx 3m below the surrounding level. Subsequent research, with much help from members of Trigonomy and the OS, established that the site owner was at 8 Carter Lane from whom permission to visit was obtained. Visited on a bright Sunday morning along with IRM, RHW and RH. The FBM was part-buried, usual GPS plaque but no benchmark plate (possibly it was buried and we didn't dig deep enough). No railings; concrete discoloured, but FBM otherwise in good condition. Height tag present but blank. Chalk pit converted to a secluded garden. Rod Sladen has since suggested that the benchmark plate would probably be on the FBM face closest to the height tag - that might be something for the next visitor to check.

It might be just inside the semi-circular piece of land to the right of Greenslacks, but all of this is well fenced off and I couldn't see any way in. It didn't look as though anyone was at home so I didn't try. Update 27/9/06 - passing by again. This time a car was in the drive but I got no response to my knocking. The house is called Green Stacks.

Looked again; I now think its on a bit of rough ground between the houses; it looks like the line of an old hedge but will wait for winter. 31/05/2005 Found the OS sketch and its pretty much where I expect - I've called at Greenslacks twice now but no-one in and its just over their back garden fence from the map.

I'm with jstead on this one; the gps indicated in a triangular piece of ground which is all houses and gardens.

I've hunted this one twice now, the first rather briefly because I had not the OS notes with me and a thunderstorm broke. The second was a thorough search with the conclusion that it is on someone's private land which is not consistent with the OS note that no permission is required. I therefore wonder if the OS published Grid Reference is correct!
