Painted yellow at some point in the past. The house is currently under going structural work of some kind, but the FB doesn't look in any danger.

Managed to miss this FB on all my visits passing here to climb Tinto. Owner knew the metric height value of the FB, and said that it had been recently used by surveyors as a reference point. By coincidence, the rounded down imperial height value of this BM is 707ft, while Tinto in 707m.
