This appears to be covered over again. I was unable to locate the bolt in the wall to start with, and after repeated efforts probing for the trig with a pointy stick had to give up my search as a lost cause. All of this left me needing to rush back to town to catch the 1001 train to Carnforth with just a few minutes to spare.

Given up on this one then saw sandgrownums bolt which he kindly left as a reference top marks.

Not that hard to find using previous logs.Had to use my best 'Ground Force' technique,stomping down & clearing some serious vegitation,but Berntsen is now visible.I made it 9 paces from gate post,1 metre from wall,but 9 or 10 paces will get you in the right area.I have left a bolt in the stone wall as a marker.

Thankyou Mick and Kim - dont think I would have found it without your hard work. For future seekers, it is 1m from the wall and 2m north of a fencepost on the other side of the wall

Hard to find in long grass but as usual Kim found it

Grass was thick at the location.

This would have been quite tricky without prvious logs and pics - many thanks guys

Finally! Found it on my 4th attempt,really well covered by grass. As previous logs state,roughly 10 paces back from the green gate(4th on the left approaching from the cattle market end of Grab lane). Should be easy enough to find now as i cleared a good area around it.

Finding this plate was soley down to the photos of PYoung1s and DaveS and the description of MacHawk. Thanks guys! I was intriged by the write up about this and had to go and have a look - never knew such things existed!

Found after a good root about, stick is still in wall, you will need to clear the vegetation away a bit.

Still reasonably uncovered. Stick still in wall to mark spot.

Many thanks to our previous groundskeepers... my wee legs made it 12 paces from the gate!
Lancaster FBM Aux1 ...looking good.

Easy to find thanks to the gardening of DaveS and MAC.HAWK
22nd Jan 2009 14:00 by MAC.HAWK
As the next vistor after DaveS I can confirm that the plate is still very visible. Had to knock off a load of leaves. I came along Grab Lane from the Cattle Market end (south) and the plate is roughly 10 paces before you reach the fourth gate on the left (currently painted green). Pyoungs1 photo was a good help as it helped to identify the wall stones - I often find it useful to carry a print out of the odd photo of these/bolts/rivets for reference on the day as their exact location can sometimes be hard to find

Took a few minutes to find as it was well covered but found it eventually. Should be a bit easier for the next visitor.

kicked around a lot of messy rubbish in thick vegetation but couldn't find it

Well hidden under the roadside vegetation.

Buried in roadside vegetation but not too difficult.

Knew the general area of the trig and found by only using the photos. Undergrowth withering away so quite easy to spot.

Tricky. I would not have found it without Bonatti's photo. However, it was made more difficult by the fact the relevant stones were behind some newly grown rose bay willow herb. Having identified the right bit of road, it was clear, and nearer the road than I was looking.
29th Jun 2006 17:45 by Father Ted
I got close using the GPS then used Bonatti's very good photo and worked it out from the shape of the stones on top of the wall. Buried under dead undergrowth but not under any soil.

Took a little while to uncover.

Another odd one - after the plant pot in Williamson park (TP7143) now this strange metal plate screwed down at the side of a road!! No number on it.

Easily found despite lack of a sketch, as it was uncovered by a recent visitor. Afterwards I returned to the park for a longer look around.
