Nice easy roadside FBM opposite a farmhouse. Lovely position with its own bit of lawn.

The nice lady still lives opposite but still hasn't found the nearby surface block, she says she is still looking and remembers Dal's visit clearly!

Parked up next to the grass verge. A nice looking FBM. Never seen one like this before.

Straightforward. While I was there the lady who lives at the farm opposite came out - she knows all about the FBM. She kindly took me to the corner of the field where the Copper Hill tiangulation station should be located (SW6622236979). I thought it might be a platform bolt, but we certainly could not see a platform. It is listed as a Block, and I suspect it may just set into the top of the thick walls. There have been changes - a gate has been infilled.

Conveniently located on a grass verge, the FBM is easily accessible. The height marker is still in place and reads 658.04 ft.

Looking down on TP7228 Well protected by brambles!

My first visit to a fundamental benchmark. Appears to be made from a good lump of solid Cornich Granite. Told my son he needed some driving practice before his driving test and I navigated him here!

This is a fundemaental mak (a small cube of stone) with a paque thereon. It is not simple to find due to its size. The GPS co-ordinates are good, but when you get near, look for a farmhouse with a lawned, car pull-in opposite it. The mark is in this pull-in, on the road side, mid-way along. On a wet day, you could even stay in the car!!. Views are pretty abysmal, but I suppose that is not what this one is all about.
