At the described location. I too asked at the farmhouse for permission and it was readily given. Nothing really to add to previous visit reports other than to confirm that it is still there and in good condition.

Young man, kindly let me take a photo, even held back the vegetation for me. Took a photo of the bolt as well for good measure.

Easy to see on the way to the farmer's front door. The vegetation has now gone, just a couple of potted plants. When I asked for permission to take a photograph he couldn't have been nicer, he said I could help myself, and he didn't even charge me!!

Bodkin- house. Farmhouse, SE face near E angle, in vegetation. Track a bit rough but easily driveable.. Not visible from road. Owner kindly allowed access, said he ought to start charging!
