We're not used to our FBMs being below gnd level! Should have read peregrinus's log properly and I might have taken some measurements and done some probing. This one is 5cm down according to the OS sketch, no longer available from the OS Passive site. Spade work required. ***Re-visited 30 Mar 2019 after it had been re-found. Parked opp side rd on golf course.

Parked at the golf course car park by the Club House, there is a footpath across the course. GPS indicated I was at the spot, which was just where the golfers cross the main road to the other side of the golf course. Checked the grass verge and ditch, nothing found. Nothing to see accept a very busy main road. Bit suspicious about there ever being a FBM here, there is Yelverton FBM Aux1 just along the road.

The Spot GPS indicated it should be just by the motor bike.©Saltash Ramblers

Had a very good look for this and even with OS photo and sketch drew a blank. I'm sure theres nothing above ground but maybe bolt is under earth or golf couse path.

I too couldn't find it, after a not very diligent search in the drizzle.

TP7256 location? A photo from the moor side of the fence, showing the bracken that makes searching difficult.

Couldn't see it from the car :-) No hope I reckoned. Subsequent info from J Russell: PSD sketch: TOP BOLT IS 5cm BELOW GROUND LEVEL

Roadside where GPS indicated it should be.
Suspicious piece of granite behind fence in golf course.

No sign of this one, only a Eurobell box.
