2Ē flat bolt. Cut mark in concrete. Found covered in debris after initially thinking it was missing as the GPS quite a few metres off on the northing. 21 strides around top of earthwork from oak tree. The general surrounds didnít look anything like the previous photos as the brambles are ferns are starting to take hold. The small tree in the foreground is now the marker. Stand with that in front of you looking perpendicularly to the pine trees. Block is immediately in front of you on top of the earthwork. Gave this a good spruce up before leaving.Non-member parking now £6 per day.

Easily found on the bank of the fort. Area is rather messy as it is currently being reverted to heathland by the RSPB.

This surface block is sited on top of the earth-work surrounding an iron age hill fort in Sandy Warren, home of the R.S.P.B. Access is easy, but there is a charge for using the car-parkÖ currently £4 for the day. The hill fort area has been cleared of trees and is being reverted to heath land as it was before the conifers were planted. I was pleasantly surprised to see a small brown lizard sunbathing on the concrete surrounding the bronze marker. I tried to get a photo but the wee beastie scuttled off before I could do so. The whole area is surrounded by trees so you canít see too far in any direction.

Its quite a long walk to this one from the main car park, though if you manage to have an excuse to use the car park next to the main house then the walk is only half as long. I visited this place early on a very hot day before the temperatures became stratospheric.

This gets a good score for a Surface Block, as rather than the usual road side thing, it is located in the RSPB nature reserve and is a mile or so walk from the car park, interesting area and worth a visit. Block is located on the bank of what looks like and old fort. There is the faint remians of the Benchmark arrow in the conrete base I assume an older mark here?
