    OS1

    Found on a hill by my 8 y/o, half buried in grass and way off any recognisable path. OS I guess signifies Ordnance Survey, FP – footpath??? What does the 46A mean? what sort of marker is this and what was it used for…?

    Found at SD 98436 07635 (ish!)

    Baby robin. It’s why they are so rarely seen as they are disguised like this.

    It’s a warning to tell you the amount and quality of frozen sausages buried here.

    Keep them coming. Clearly @redthunder is trying to soil the discussion in talking nonsense here.

    It’s an early version of Tinder.
    They were markers left at popular meeting places.

    I think I’ve seen that. Is it near 46?

    A gravestone ?

    They recently found the gravestone of the oldest man in the UK, aged 146.

    Miles from Belfast.

    It’s a secret entrance to the Lost island.

    That’s obviously wrong, it’s clearly the lost entrance to Secret Island.

    Is it MOD land?

    Plenty of excellent suggestions up there, highly entertaining.
    A slightly more serious answer, possibly, is that you’ve come across this OS buried block although if your grid ref is anything like accurate, it’s wandered a good couple of hundred metres from where it ought to have been, which is a site just uphill from the footpath and near the top of the hill. No better ideas than that to be honest.

    Thank all for these highly entertaining answers!

    Cheers @thelawman. The hill it’s on actually has two summit (lower and greater Knott Hill.) the obvious peak on the map you point out is ‘Greater’, but ‘Lower’ is nearer to the location, probably 20-30m away.

    Interesting that the only visitor to it ‘couldn’t find it’ it would have been buried under heather until 2019 when there was a huge moorland fire and cleared everything out.
