Still in its playpen, but the height plate has gone. Other than that, not much to see here.

Roadside playpen on B3404 - close to road so care required. A little overgrown, seen worse (and better). Height tag missing, was located on vertical plate on W face of block.

Not particularly overgrown at the moment, and no significant change since recent reports, so an easy 'get'.

Safe and sound in a rather rusty playpen on road verge. CJO's gardening still much in evidence, thanks!

Overgrown. On north side of road under a big tree. Gave this one a spruce up.

After a walk taking in Beacon Hill (Exton), Old Winchester Hill and Salt Hill Reservoir trigs we thought we would stop by this FBM before traveling home, I'm glad its in the fence or it would be very hard to find.

Easy enough to find. Badly overgrown, had to do a fair bit of gardening before pics could be taken. Took several splinters away as a souvenir.

Earliest style of Fundamental Bench Mark, dating from around 1912 - square pillar; top bolt without lettering; cast plaque on front referring to "Height of Bolt". Also 1999 GPS plaque on back of pillar. In good condition, with standard green railings, at side of busy road (B3404, former A31)

Did Winchester FBM AUX 1 on way south and this one on the way back. A much happier tale with this one as the other one was missing but it was getting dusk so views not great for us.

I have driven past here loads of times in the past and never noticed this before.I had no trouble finding it but the speed of the traffic along here is a bit un-nerving.This is the first one that I have seen in a cage which was nice. All is well if a little overgrown.

Trigpoint easy to find as it sits within green railings by the road. This sort of minitaure pillar was found to be in good condition.

Located at the side of the B3404, very easy to find. FBM is is good condition, the "playpen" is however looking a bit old and rusty.

Not sure why they've built an auxilliary passive station down the road as this one is easily accessible and protected by railings.
