There are three Fenomarks recorded in the OS trig marks database for this area, all in Secondary block SE44 with Station numbers T191, T192 and T193. The marks are approximately in a line and equally spaced. The computation and levelling years for the original marks are also identical (1987). So a common purpose, presumably motorway-related, is implied. Spitalgap Lane is at the SW end of the group. There are two entries in the trig marks database with near-identical coordinates; the earlier one is flagged as 'destroyed'. The W end of the lane is blocked to traffic but the area is popular with dog-walkers who were probably bemused by my investigations. Was expecting fly-tipping but the area is reasonably clear. However, vegetation has encroached onto the tarmac. GPS pointed to the centre of the road which seems unlikely; nothing found in the tarmac. Checked both verges but nothing found. The location seemed slighly arbitrary - not particularly near junctions of field boundaries and no obvious alignments with the many pylons, power station chimneys and cooling towers. Flat landscape; cold wind.

I've walked passed this in October 2010 after tigging the Great Clump (invisible) trig totally unaware it was (allegedly) there. This web address gives details of what a Fenomark is -

Originally passed last year, when searching for Great Clump. The point may have been near to the overhead telegraph poles, which are marked on my OS map. Noted this is the bottom of the entire league which is why i am giving a 1 - Spittal Gap lane used to be a junction on the old A1, further back ancient travellers would have been glad to pass safely through Barnsdale northwards.

No idea what a fenomark is but couldn't find it - probably just missing like the Great Clump trig

Out in the area visiting some of the local pillars when this location came onto the radar. As I had no idea what a Fenomark was I thought I would come and have a look. I still don't know what a Fenomark is as I could not find anything that could not be called anything other than rubbish. Hope that the next person has more luck than I did. Some handy parking to the north of this old closed road.
