Fairly easily found from the road, on way back from Seatallan and earlier that day Scafell Pike and Lingmell, glorious weather.

Rhododendum seems to have gone so this was an easy find dispute me only having a six three figure grid reference.

Buried under a large Rhodie bush on the roadside.

A few branches of the Rhodadendron had to be cut away.

2nd of the 'Wasdale 3'. Easy spot under the rhododendron bush in front of the wall as described below. Cleared some greenery away from it.

Wet and miserable. No views down Wasdale. The FBM is easy, if a bit buried and overgrown

Cumberland. Found it straightaway, under edge of the rhododendron bush. The easiest of the Wasdale Three.

Followed the instructions from the roadsign, and found the bracken was well trambled (presumably a recent visitor), and there was the FBM, just under the edge of the rhodendren. More straightforward than I thought it would be.

This FBM was a devil to find-the grid refs for this site were not convincing.The following clues should help.The FBM is not on private ground but set fairly well back from the small road amongst dense undergrowth.To help further approach uphill from the 12%road sign for 24 paces and you should find it on the right hand side of the roadabout 3-4 metres towards the wall-GOOD LUCK!!
