on blind corner, deep leaf litter at side of road. Not easy and dangerous to explore fully

Construction work just on the Buxton side of the railway bridge meant traffic lights regulating the A6 traffic through the bridge, so a rare opportunity to make a close inspection of the wall in comparative safety. Eventually spotted the top inch of the FB protruding from the muck and vegetation. Excavated the FB for photographs. Location now marked for the benefit of future visitors with a couple of bricks placed either side of the FB!

Retaining wall on inside of a bend on S side of the busy A6, E of the railway bridge. BM 256.59m on MasterMap. Spent some time examining the retaining wall from the comparative safety of the opposite side of the road, but could not see FB. Possibly buried in road surface. Also photographed wall for close examination later in a safer location - looks like FB may be there, clear of the road surface, but well camouflaged by grime. Will need a return visit to check!

Considering npfb 2535 this one may be under tarmac.
