About 10m out from the GR and partially buried made this one a tricky one to locate. Height tag missing. See http://trigpointing.uk/trig/7137.

Nothing really to add other than to confirm that it is still there.

Took quite a bit of hunting around in midsummer brambles, overhead cover preventing a decent signal. Sketch spot on though. Parking round corner.

Fortunately had consulted diagram and photograph on OS GPS site before setting off. My GPSr sniffed it out for me. Behind seemingly pointless but easily climbed barbed fence, in front of ruined wall. Was mostly buried, now partially dug out. Surrounding soil and fallen branches removed to photograph. GPS plate on top. GRP.
