Still there. Still partly excavated. Still flooded. Perhaps gravity is getting stronger and has pulled the pillar into the ground. On the opposite side of the pub to the car park.

The wooden blocks and cones in Wrose's photo have now been replaced by a small 'cairn' (pile of stones really)

Stop the press! - Traffic cone has gone and the FBM is now covered by a pile of rocks. I spoke to the Landlord he said cone kept blowing away, and then people keep driving into it! so a "cairn" seems to of done the trick - I carefully removed the rock, took my images and re-covered it. FBM is a bit knocked about, great views.

In location as dscribed. Nothing really to add to previous reports other than to say that it is still there. Nice to be able to take up the offer of two for the price of one with G3602 only being a few feet away.
