In good order

Roadside, but well hidden as being overhung by large amount of ivy, although playpen is mainly clear. Good condition with height tag in place - 371.51FT just about readable. OS Surface Block few metres to E. Photos at:

Ivy bush hides FBM from the road, but access and area within railings recently cleared of all ivy

Completely covered - walked passed it several times! - Finally crawled on my hands and knees through a small tunnel in the ivy - FBM good condition as you would expect this well hidden.
