Tried to view this from the road initially given that school was in progress, but not possible now due to mature boundary hedgeing etc. Called at reception and pleasantly surprised to be escorted round to the FB which myself and Roger Templeman were allowed to photograph. Receptionist given a potted history of the OS and levelling which she found very interesting - honest. Photos at:
