I was looking for the pillar when a van pulled up at the gate. They asked me if they could help. I said "yes, I'm lookg for a fundamental benchmark". The van driver said "?". So I said, " a short pillar about this high". Oh, you mean this" and opened the gate and then shouwed it to me. I thanked him for his kindness.

Easy find with the info from previous benchmarkers. Satisfied with the view through the fence. Lots of litter about, unfortunately.

One of my walking group knows the operator of the dog training field so I took an opportunity to be inside the fence to get a photo not spoiled by the fence wire. In good condition, but minus the height plate, and carrying an ORDNANCE SURVEY BM plate on the NW face, and the damage notice on the NE.
