Long Description:

Finding the primary sub-surface benchmark has so far eluded me as with road reconstruction it’s probably buried deeper than originally reported (5cm). There were four reference marks originally and the only one I’ve found so far is the azimuth reference mark located 1.3km at a bearing of 1°45’53” from the primary.

It’s a copper survey bolt set in a small concrete bridge over a ditch giving access to the adjacent field so needed some cleaning off before being able to read it and take a picture. Must remember to pack a brush on BM hunting expeditions
