Ah. Now the freshly dug turf makes sense. There is now a metal electric fence post attached to the adjacent fence. Had been up to the Otterburn range to bag a couple of pillars, but because of red flags, soldiers and buzzing helicopters, had to abandon the venture. This bolt was a nice consolation prize. With C J.

ok..I gave up and got out the car, wet boots back on wet fleece back on...took measurements from OS site, relatively easy to find with the patent screwdriver prodding technique. Block is opposite the large fence post with the pin in the top, as you face the fence its slighty to the right of the fence post 1.7 meters away....did this one without GPS as it went tits up due to being so damn wet...i know how it feels!

Even with the photographs to go by, I couldn't find it but then the grass is presently much taller.

This one was already exposed and very easy to find today. Lovely spot in old DofE haunting grounds for me.

Relatively easy find this, after locating the right fence post!
