A lot easier to view now! Still inside the compound but no longer an oil tank. Stand on the back of the playground bench to see over the wall, but this gives an oblique view.

Agile and slim lets me off the hook - no chance.

Yes, it's there! On E face of old school house behind green, plastic oil tank, inside a locked brick compound. School secretary was amused and gave me the key to the padlock. Very hard to see. Best view from far end of compound but one needs to be agile and slim to get there!

44.45m BM on LandLine, halfway along E face of westernmost building. Possibly lost to extension - needs revisit to check
