EW0941 - "F1147"
Found EW0941 on 16 February 2019 at 16:40 as described and in good condition with the described witness post intact. Recent surveying activities, including many pieces of flagged lath and paint on the rocks made the mark easy to find. For the record, I am NOT a fan of surveyor graffiti. Surveyors should leave little to no trace, especially in rural areas such as this.
Adjacent marks EW0940 (T 24 CADT) and EW0942 (G1147) were also located and found in good condition.
