YSM688 Grampound FBM. Spotted in the nettles on this busy road. Cheers.

Busy road so had to park 100 yards further down in the farm entrance. Quick find and spotted the cache as well.

Drove to within 4 metres of it, so found easily at this time of year.

An interesting trig. Very hard to sport but still there and in good condition

First looked for this in 2009 and again in 2012. Glad it was found recently.

11.5m N of largeish very mis-shapen oak tree, at base of hedge. Easy find currently. Well done dal.

Found after a day's geocaching and finding the nearby FBM Aux. Noted this one straight away, easy find with good co-ords.

Tough to find even with all the other clues. Nearer to the edge of the verge than we expected. It is under a bush but very overgrown. Cleared it as much as possible but it is very mossy. White lines have been re-done and it is now opposite a white line rather than level with a gap.

How difficult can it be to find an FBM?? Tjhanks to dal's clue I eventually got there; it might be OK in the spring but in the late summer it isn't easy! Definitely one for the gloves and protective clothing. OS tag has gone. Overgrown but otherwise unscathed.

This one survives. The verge is easier in February. The FBM is set against the bank, and was hidden by grass. The only guide I can give is it is opposite a gap in the white line. I left it clear.

The FBM is ringed. The white line is the best context to its position.

I'm convinced its on the E side of the road where it widens between road edge and an old hedge (mainly hidden). Return winter.

Had a pretty good look for this one but no sign.

Dull roadside location - judging from others' efforts, I didn't even bother getting out of the car!

OS sketch has no measurements and no obvious pillar type fbm at roadside. Much greenery.

Not really sure what I was looking for here, whatever it is I couldn't see it. All I can see is lots of grass!
