When the triggers weekend came to light I plotted for Mr PKB and Dusty to do some local bagging around Mrs PKB's hometown. This is the first one. The Golden Fleece being the nearest junction to my childhood home. There was a truck stop across the road from the flush bracket and on the other side of the roundabout was the Carrow Hotel that Mrs PKB worked in as weekend chambermaid for two years during college. Hotel now renamed and expanded....

Standing on the A6 verge with your back to the Golden Fleece service area the bracket is tucked round the right hand corner of the red sandstone building and is completely overgrown with vegetation. Fortunately it is on the lowest stone and before the drainpipe. Not for you if you don't like spiders (8 legged variety)!
