Walked up from Horton-in-Ribblesdale station. FBM taller than most and seemingly popular place for cows to use as toilet. On T:UK at http://trigpointing.uk/trig/516. Got soaked on way back to station. Photo showing the mark at http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/5108542 with wider view at http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/5108565

Easy find using the Pennine Bridleway from the B-road to the NNE initially. FBM is about 25m west from gate and on north side of the wall.

A somewhat remote location. But it is still there and apart from a missing height tag is in good condition.
