What's interesting about this, is that the current OS database doesn't show this as existing, instead there is a cut benchmark, as verified by the OS in '64.

Not seen on earlier visit but friendly owner said it was there 30 yrs ago but soil had built up. Yes, I'd be welcome to return and dig myself! Parking possible outside farmyard. I did return and clearing leaves just outside the field gate I could see the top of the fb. Dug it clear to comfirm number. Reburied it as owner requested 'in case someone is minded to steal it.'
