YSM415 Flax Bourton - Terrain 1.5 Difficulty 1 - Our 2nd YOSM of the trip Easy roadside bag for this 'dangerous' FBM that has to be kept in a cage. Another one with a height tag, think this is the 3rd I've bagged with one left, 2 of which have been 'dangerous'

Easy access and a Forestry Commission car park close by. The fenced enclosure is somewhat overgrown but the FBM is still visible. This one still had it’s height plate attached… 465.38 ft. Located at the side of an urban road, there are no views to speak of.

The enclosure is sited on a roadside verge with a scattering of snowdrops close by. The railings are painted green and the pillar can be easily seen through the leafless branches growing through the pen. Ivy covers the floor. Horses were grazing in the adjacent field and there are houses on the opposite side of the road. An entrance to the Tyntesfield Estate is just down the road.

Easy to spot the railings, less easy to see the FBM lurking inside. I tried to get a GPS reading but it was way out, perhaps because of the trees at the nearby parking spot where I turned the GPS on.

TP7221 Rather overgrown inside the railings.
