Nothing really to add to previous visit reports other than to confirm that it is still there and in good condition. Could not get photo as whilst trying to park up was causing something of tailback much to the annoyance of a forty tonner!

Stopped on the bridge whilst driving over (making sure it was safe!) to get drive by photos. The FB has the lug missing in the top left bracket hole so I'm labeling this as slightly damaged. http://maps.jochta.com/benchmarks.php?id=664
