The top edge of the FB *may* just be visible at road level. As the location is on the imside of a bend with no footway, I do not intend to investigate more closely unless there is a road closure!

Visited on 21st September 2004 by RodS. Grid reference: SK 2838 6172. Condition: Probably destroyed.
Matlock, NE angle of building at Darley Lodge, W side of Bakewell Road (A6). Location verified from large scale maps. BM 110.46m on LandLine. Location inspected on several occasions, but no trace found of FB. No obvious reason why it should have been destroyed, so most likely buried beneath raised road level. Very awkward location - no footway on W side of busy A6 at this point, and on inside of bend.
