Very tall vegetation cover makes it difficult to confirm FBM is not here. The GR places trig adjacent to pumping station so it is likely it was removed during installation.

Had a poke about with a tent peg after lining up with the expected point on the house across the busy road. Measured back from the kerb, but no joy. Vegetation pretty dense. Will require a winter visit, some pruning and a spade, I think! OS sketch not totally helpful.....

Couldnt find it. Will need a winter visit - there is far too much vegetation around at this time of year for any meaningful search. Had a prod around with my walking stick although nothing solid was hit. Parking not good along this stretch of road although there is a handy gate with generous pull in room a couple of hundred yards to the east.

Couldnt find it. Little foilage about a but a lot of debris around the base of the hedge. I had a decent rummage but didnt find a thing.

Info from www.bench-marks.org.uk/bm1176 says: NW side of road, 12' NE from production of SW side of Inglenook [3GL]; on verge, N side of B3263 road, 1.1m S of hedge, 4.3m E from production of W face of house Inglenook opposite side of road - pillar destroyed, but rebuilt 1977 and reheighted 1979 as 57.2834m ODN; pillar reduced in height 1989 with new top Bolt, reheighted as 56.957435m ODN; described as "buried in verge". Better gridref from OS site NY4602253524. This info puts the FBM a few metres NE of water compound, and says we are looking for a surface block probably buried under the verge. The distance from the production of the house gives the position along the road, but the hedge measurement is more dubious - is it in the same place? I had a good prod with my tent peg, but had no joy.

Cumberland. If it is there, I think January would be the best month for a thorough search. Some FBMs are only at ground level.

My GPS pointed me to the hedge to the right of the compound, but it was too overgrown to spot anything.

18/27 Drew the same blank as everyone else not sure its in the water board compound but the summer growth could be hiding it to the right. Will try and dig out the Landline mapping of the area to confirm

os sketch indicates just to right of water company thing. Looks like people opposite use verge to dump their garden waste onto. Best take a spade.

GPS led me to roadside enclosure but its for water company. No sign of what I would consider a fbm. Looked up and down roadside verges as well.

I could not find it either, or the other non pillar about these parts. Had a very good look.
