Prodded the right location with a stick, though obviously not deep enough :(.

under a flower bed

Prodded in the flower bed to make sure it was still there, but did not disturb it. There was no one in the stocks - pity, I had taken some rotten eggs and wrinkled tomatos

Although there were some flowers in the bed, they were rather sparse and not close to the block. Easy find after prodding with my tent peg.

Surface block was easy to find thanks to ted's photo. However, it is now under a composted border that looked ready for planting, so it might not be so easy to unearth in the summer months!

Lancashire. A few inches down in composted flower bed, but only with dandelions at the moment.

again forgot the sketch (hadn't planned to come this way) so another fail

I'd called yesterday but didn't know exactly where to look. Last night looked on the website and realised I'd actually seen the little solily path, so returned this morning with a pointy tool and found it

At junction of Winstanley Road and Pemberton Road next to stocks. Straightforward find with the OS sketch; slight hollow and a shallow covering of earth. Bolt is approx 1" diameter.

Found using a metal detector and a trowel. It's a good couple of inches under.

Most comfortable stocks I've ever sat in. Shame I couldnt see the stud though.
29th Jan 2005 10:21 by Deego
Not sure how to log this. We had the sketch and maybe we could have felt it below the grass. But without a spade or a metal detector. could not be sure.

28/29 for the day. Tricky find but got it!

Well buried, but it will show in a dry spell. Lifted a sod with a shovel and replaced the divot, so as not to make it too easy :-)
11th Oct 2003 09:03 by Beatle Bones
cl=ould not find it Time was short

Did not see the actual block as its buried, but a brown piece of grass shows where it is buried. Follow the link to the OS website where a sketch and pic confirm the exact point.

I had quite a hunt for this one as it is nicely buried and only found it with the aid of the original surveyor's sketch. It was at the time GC45CC - Ye Ole Survey Monuments
