opposite junction in a hedge pretty much. very busy road with a blind crest just a short distance away. be careful. probably the least inspiring fbm ive visited. a visit to the lead mines at Minera is well worthy.

Easy to see in hedge at this time of year but needs someone with secateurs to have a good hack!

Surprisingly difficult to spot on the roadside verge, well-buried in long vegetation. Photos helped.

Found this one at the second attempt. Tried in september but could not find it in the dense undergrowth, but thanks to some of the pictures people have taken, it was much easier today. Last of the year.

It makes a pleasant change to find a full set of FBM-plus-friends; the three here were all logged in as many minutes. Had just been up at Park Lead Mines pillar (TP5311) and came down here past the disused quarries, an interesting little walk.

Middle one of the three. Ran out from near Wrexham after a wedding in the area on the previous day. Haven't come across anything like this combination before

Didn't take long to find this one although covered up by cuttings. Good view of several other trigs in the area.

Last of the three, on the opposite side of the road to the Bernsten. Rather overgrown [grass cutting doesn't apparantly stretch to the fence] but found OK. English and Welsh anti-vandal notices on sides. No FB number or height plaque.

Being in the area I couldn't resist calling in on three different trigs so close together!

vgc, no height tag, usual plaques. N verge, 3m back, 8m W of centreline of Gwynfryn road junction. Hedge has been pruned almost to ground level, leaving FBM obvious.

Near the route I was on so as three trigs so very together it was too good not to miss. Easily visible at the roadside.

This one had me foxed!! They cut the bloody hedge down didn't they! So I spent nearly an hour digging in a hedge slightly to the west! Then I saw it by the new garden fence, across from the lane that runs south. Good condition, no FB number. And it's 5m west of the grid ref shown on the page, which looks suspiciously 'rounded'to me
