YSM706 Tolcarne FBM. Sat nav took me to wrong place. Ended up someone's driveway and I managed to wedge the car on a giant boulder with 2 wheels off the ground. After a good while, sorted it and then found the FBM in the correct lane.

Satnav brought us all the way through Penzance to this one and had to park down a side street and wander up the lane.

Easy to find up a very steep and narrow road. FBM is next to a garage door at the top on the left.

Steep walk up, but a great view out from the nearby cache site.

The lane leading to the FBM branches off the main road just about opposite the road that leads to the auxiliary bolt, so having logged that first, I had no trouble in finding the FBM. It is up against the RH post of an entrance to a garage.

Cornwall. Near a garage but surprisingly good view. We could see Newlyn lighthouse and St Michael's Mount.

Relatively easy climb. You should walk it from Tolcarne bolt which is literally at the bottom of the hill and accross the road. OK condition, but views restricted by houses and trees.

Took a bit of a search as we were not sure exactly what a Fundamental Benchmark looked like. Anyway, there it was sat at the side of the road next to a garage. It is also at the top of a steep hill!

There it was by the garage
