Easily found with its own wee bramble free path. Jon Glue does have his uses and I am always pleased to audit the quality of his work.

Now the brambles have regrown, and some, I couldn't find it despite a detailed sketch map and two of us trampling and bashing with sticks. Bring secateurs, rake and spade?
