Just about visible in thick undergrowth with a tree getting rather too large for my liking growing up against the granite pillar. http://trigpointing.uk/trig/7148

Not an easy find, spent a while probing around but located it eventually in dense undergrowth. Height tag missing, needs digging out to see if there is any damage, but from what can be seen it looks ok. Photos at:

Well and truly enveloped in growth and foliage but it is still there and covered in moss.
