Made a bit of a hash of this, but got it in the end. Initially parked at end of lane and walked up, but couldn\'t find FBM even with GPS, owing to 4 foot high weeds. So returned to car for sketch and reversed back up to passing place. Even with sketch it took a bit of finding.

BM 50.67m. Spent some time digging this one out to reveal the original "Ordnance Survey Bench Mark" plate which was completely buried. It is on the LHS of the block from the track. This now resembles an FBM rather than a surface block. Warning, broken bottles buried here too. GRP.

Good, but almost completely buried, GPS plate lettering showing wear & tear.
