As others have said it may still be there but undergrowth is dense

I may go as far as saying this is possible missing. The GR aligns with the grass verge on the NW side of the road. Running down the bridge is a fresh line of tarmac indicating that some new services have been installed. This aligns with the suspected location. The tarmac runs under the grass and emerges down the lane before entering a BT manholecover. Probing only revealed a few rocks and gravel.

Balm Hill Bridge Note alignment of "service trench" and screwdrivers which are on the GR of the surface block.

No obvious sign of it but I hold out hope that it still survives hidden away in the undergrowth.

Comprehensively searched both sides of the bridge but no sign of any surface block. To be honest it could be anywhere in the undergrowth or under the grass between the footpath & the road or it could well be long gone as the footpath itself is tarmac & has been dug up/resurfaced numerous times.

No joy. All I had to on was the gridref & GPS. Dusk was gathering.
