Pre-arranged visit escorted by the same colonel as escorted the boys last month (I was away). Included a few off-limits benchmarks too. My final extant FBM (thought to be 185 currently surviving).

With Douglas Law on a private, pre-arranged tour conducted by the castle superintendent, a retired Royal Marines colonel - very pleasant and helpful chap. FBM nestles in against terracing at the NW end of the East Lawn; retains its height tag - 157.19ft.

Inaccessible - an understatement in this case! Tall fence and warning signs quoting the terrorism and organised crime act

Windsor Castle as close as i could get to the FBM. I also believe there is a FB behind the gate on the gatehouse

Got as far as the back garden (East Terraced Garden) and no further.Police/Armed guard and an airport security search to get this far,Not for the eyes of a mere common peasant like me.Going to have to get a job as the Queen's Royal Gardner to see this one.Did manage to get a bit further than Phil Richards,don't know why the gates were shut by the guard as you cannot see the terraced gardens from that point.Perhaps the owners were in and doing a spot of sun bathing.

So Close Just over the battlements and down to the lower garden to the right©asteroth
East Terrace All very nice but why not let the riff-raff a little bit further along the path for a better view.©asteroth
East terrace +castle What us commoners would call the back yard.©asteroth

It being a weekend, the owner was there, but when I spoke to their servants at the gates,I was not allowed access. Privacy rule applies therefore.

I've always wondered about the lack of logs for this one. The answer appears to be the 13.50 entrance fee for the castle. Closest non paying access is at about 400m but I might try and confirm it on some fancy new oblique air photos I should be able to access next time I am in southampton

Logged for completeness - looked for this when finding TP0633 - Windsor castle FBM Aux 1 - clearly not going to be generally accessible to the masses :(
