Visited on 14th August 2004 by RodS. Grid reference: SK 293 230. Condition: Couldn't find it.
First of several searches, none of which found any sign of the FB, even though BM 110.88m is marked on LandLine. [Postscript: IGR has since confirmed the location from OS 3GL data now at TNA - "NE face, 46' from E angle of house 'Home Farm', Bretby Farm, Bretby" - SK 2931 2307]
