Not too easy to find with brambles hiding it. Photo showing the bracket at http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/4104312 with wider view at http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/4104340. Close inspection of the site revealed a rivet a few cm to the left of the bracket, see http://www.bench-marks.org.uk/bm58236

Visited in March 2009 where I found it in good condition apart from being immersed in flood water from time to time.

Hidden a little by the vegetation, but other than that easily found. The bridge is also a handy shelter when it starts to rain, as it did when I visited!
