Found near an ornate lamppost, all that was needed was snow and Mr Tumnus. No view here as track cut through stone to provide access to castle.

As per previous logs easy access via gateway off main road, couldn't spot it at first and thought you might have to pay to enter the castle, then there it was behind me with it's Narnia style lamppost close by.

Easy access up from gateway. FBM is in a recess in the rock next to an ornate lamp post. Absolutely filthy and could do with another clean. The recess collects leaves and dirt and I guess when it rains it gets splattered.

Easily accessed FBM via the main gate of Warwick Castle and along the odd high-sided road towards the castle. In a nook on the north side near an old lamppost. Poor GPS reading due to the lack of visible sky! Height tag present, which is unusual. 182.43ft.

This is on a path to Warwick Castle - one end has a gate which is not always open but you can access the path from the Warwick Castle Car Park at the main entrance instead

Easy to find - about 100 yards inside the gate opposite St Nicholas Church. On RHS by the old lamp post. Difficult to get a plot as it is in a cutting. What is so special about this location?

Warwickshire. Interesting location in rock cutting near the castle. The Narnia style lamp adds to the character.

Unusual location. Very wet and very gloomy (well it is lunchtime on a Bank Holiday weekend). Combined with visits to 3 nearby 1GL Bolts (St Nics, St Marys and 37 High St).

Height tag intact. This FBM regularly gets covered in dirt, making it sometimes look as if the OS plaque has disappeared.

Easy find, following directions by previous visitors. It's also a rather boring find, and covered in muck and dust.

A bit happier now after my failure in the car park 10 mins ago. This is the first FBM I've ever seen. In cutting leading to Warwick catle and about 3m below (pre cut) ground level. 182.43 feet above datum.

Out to do a "Bit of shopping" in Warwick, had to do this one! Often been in to the castle grounds, but never approached the castle from this direction. Edit. The OS "Offence To Damage" Plate seems to be missing..? Check against previous photos.

Covered in dirt, almost think it was a gravestone for a beloved pet!©Bear and Ragged

A curious location in an old sandstone cutting leading to Warwick Castle. As a result, the TP is about 4m below the top of the bedrock, with no view in any direction, and no GPS signal. So 7 out of 10 for interest! Castle entry is 16.95!

Not a lot to add - except to reiterate that it's about as safe as an FBM could be - not much danger of redevelopment here!

Subterrainian. A cutting through soft sandstone leading up to the Castle. No GPS reception when I was down there. I went in through the car park and down some steps having parked near the Berntsen.

In a gully leading up to Warwick Castle. I thought it would be on top of one of the earth banks so I had my lad climbing them to search for the block when I saw it by the side of the road. Although it is on land owned by the castle it is before the point at which you have to pay to get in.
