Seriously overgrown, despite being so close to road missed seeing the 'play pen' on first 2 passes. Cleared a lot of brambles and nettles to enable access into the pen for a bit more clearing. FBM in good condition except for missing height tag.

Located on road junction, almost impossible to see and image this time of the year - all appeared to be in good conditon, standard "playpen"
