Over ditch and iffy fence to easily find FBM.

If I'd looked for the geocache first I'd have spotted it earlier! Wee ditch and fence to cross and some boggy ground but easy enough!

Hard to spot in the long grass. The stile (and toilet block)in the sketch have gone. A group of women and children having a picnic in the layby were trying very hard not to stare at the strange man. Why no Aux?
