At side of a farm track, along which the farmer actively discourages visitors with 'Disease Risk' signage. I did a quick risk assessment and decided I was no risk so ignored that and found FBM ok if a little sunken into the ground; low-level, green scaffold-type railing surround it; height tag missing.
