FB in good shape on southern abutment of bridge BRB WAB11, but needed excavation as all but top now buried. Bracket left exposed after photograph: see http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/3971413 with location view at http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/3971435

Still there, what bit is visible. Parking difficult. Makes me realise that, since I started this lark, the speed of traffic on country roads has increased considerably. What do they intend to do with the seconds they shave off their journey times? Bring about world peace perhaps? No, I thought not.
